Police in large number land in Okhla

As campaigning for MCD polls came to end, residents saw large number of police landing in the locality.

56,000 personnel to provide security cover for MCD polls.

Someone were seen moving towards Shaheen Bagh on e-rickshaw where many political parties were holding their roadshows hours before campaigning in Delhi for the April 23 MCD polls came to an end.

The heavy deployment is because of the election. It is understood that police and forces would be deputed outside booths to make sure that elections go on peacefully.

Many residents aware of this fact said heavy police recruitment will only keep trouble mongers at bay.

The show of strength by political parties and even powerful independent leaders came to an end on a peaceful note with residents heaving a sigh of relief as just a few days ago Congress and AAP workers had clashed late night in Batla House.

Leaders of both the parties had made counter claims.

The arrival of police in the locality during election time is a norm and that is why many were not taken aback with their presence in the locality.

The MCD election is being most-talked about in the sense that it is a litmus test for the AAP that a few years ago had come to power in Delhi winning landslide.

It would be interesting to see whether the party repeats its performance to remove the BJP from the MCDs that it has been ruling for a long time.
