Elaborate security arrangements in Kolkata for TMC's Sahid Divas rally

In Kolkata, elaborate security arrangements have been made for Sahid Divas rally of ruling Trinamul Congress at Esplanade today. 

Around 5,000 police personnel will be deployed to ensure incident-free rally. Fire Brigade personnel and Medical teams have been kept ready to meet any eventualities. 

The West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamul Congress Supremo Miss Mamata Banerjee will address the rally. Vehicular traffic movements in important roads in Kolkata will be regulated from early morning on Sunday. 

AIR Kolkata Correspondent reports that on this day in 1993 13 Youth Congress activists died in police firing in Kolkata while Secretariat March during Jyoti Basu Government in the State. 

Miss Mamata Banerjee was State Youth Congress President at that time. 

Trinamul Congress is observing the day as Sahid Divas after the formation of the party. 

This year's rally assumes significance in view of the rising strength of BJP in West Bengal.
