Delhi Enhances Security for Modi Swearing-In Ceremony | Top 10 Points

In view of Narendra Modi’s swearing-in ceremony as the prime minister of India on Sunday, the authorities have put in place massive security arrangements in and around Delhi, including imposing prohibitory orders and declaring the city a no-flying zone.

President Droupadi Murmu will administer the oath of office and secrecy to Modi and his cabinet ministers at 7:15 pm on Sunday, at the Rashtrapati Bhavan’s Forecourt.

Here are 10 Points on Delhi’s Security Arrangements:

1. Top officials of the Delhi Police conducted a thorough security review at the Rashtrapati Bhavan as part of the preparations for the mega event.

2. Special security measures have also been taken for foreign dignitaries, including Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremasinghe and Bhutanese Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay, who are few of the global leaders arriving in the national capital to attend PM Modi’s oath ceremony.

3. Enhanced security protocols have been put in place at the designated hotels where these foreign guests will stay during their visit to New Delhi.

4. Additionally, the city police have issued an advisory announcing a ‘No-Fly Zone’ over the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi.

5. The advisory prohibits the operation of sub-conventional aerial platforms, aiming to prevent any potential threats emanating from criminal and anti-social elements, or terrorists, during the oath ceremony of the new union government.

6. The restrictions and prohibitions will be effective from June 9 till June 10, the advisory said.

7. “With effect from 09.06.2024, there will be a prohibition on flying of sub-conventional aerial platforms like para-gliders, para-motors, hang-gliders, UAVS, UASS, microlight aircrafts, remotely piloted aircrafts, hot air balloons, small sized powered aircrafts, quadcopters or para-jumping from aircraft etc. over the jurisdiction of the NCT of Delhi in view of swearing-in ceremony in the National Capital Territory of Delhi to thwart criminal, anti-social elements or terrorists inimical to India from posing a threat to the safety of the general public, dignitaries and vital installations by using them,” the police said in an advisory issued on X.

8. The violators of the rules would be penalised and prosecuted under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

9. The Rashtrapati Bhavan also announced to cancel the weekly Change of Guard Ceremony on June 8.

10. The security measures were taken after the formal appointment of Narendra Modi as prime minister-designate by the President on Friday.
