Jubilant Palli residents term PM Modi’s visit a pride, historic moment

JAMMU: On Saturday, a multi-layered security setup was put in place in preparation for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Sunday visit to Jammu's Samba area. After Friday's terror assault in Jammu city, in which two terrorists and a CISF officer were killed, the security setup was tightened up with traffic restrictions.

Despite the incident, Palli village inhabitants seem unaffected and enthusiastic about Modi's arrival. The ordinarily peaceful village has sprung to life as the people anticipate the VVIP visit with bated breath. Village elders can't remember the last time they saw such a flurry of activity and excitement.

In Jammu, Bari Brahmana, and Samba, more than 100 hotels, including luxury hotels, have been reserved for delegates attending the two-day Panchayat Raj Diwas on Sunday.  Government officials, Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs), Block Development Councils, District Development Councils, and top politicians are among the attendees.

A solar power installation with a capacity of 500 KVA has been erected to give electricity to 340 people in the Palli panchayat, making it "the country's first carbon-free area." More than one lakh people are expected to attend the event.

All along the International Border, a high alert has been issued, and rigorous security arrangements have been taken in the towns of Srinagar and Jammu as well. After a three-tier anti-sabotage exercise, the venue of Modi's ceremony in Palli panchayat has been declared off-limits to the general public.

Security around vital installations in Jammu and Kashmir has been tightened up, and security drills such as helicopter landings and high-speed vehicle movement have been conducted at the location.
