“Elaborate security arrangements have been made at the secretariat and the nearby legislators’ home to facilitate smooth conduct of the assembly proceedings for the floor test,” Director General of Police Nilamani Raju said here.

The city police also imposed Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC), prohibiting assembly of five or more persons 1 km in and around the secretariat to maintain law and order for the day-long session.

As directed by a three-judge bench of the apex court, security has also been provided to all the legislators participating in the floor test at 4 p.m.

“We have deployed five Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCPs), 20 Assistant Commissioners of Police (ACPs), 40 inspectors and 2,000 constables around the venue to prevent any untoward incident,” Additional Commissioner of Police B.K. Singh told reporters earlier.
