“We have deployed more than 2,000 security personnel to ensure that the event goes peacefully and law and order is maintained,” a senior police official said.
Police personnel will be deployed for crowd management and to ensure that no unauthorised person gains entry and disrupts law and order, he added.
According to an advisory by the Delhi Traffic Police, around 15,000-20,000 people are likely to participate in the Mahapanchayat.
