Getting ready for Mahamaham

ARRANGEMENTS FOR security, bandobust and crowd control for the Mahamaham at Kumbakonam early next year seem to be on in full swing.

With the 1992 Mahamaham providing a grim reminder of the tragedy that occurred, authorities want to ensure that the mela passes off without any major incident this time.

Elaborate arrangements with regard to regulating flow of vehicles, pedestrians and crowd control will be in place during the festival, authorities assure.

In view of this, the State Government recently sent about a half-a-dozen police officers, in the rank of Superintendents of Police to Kumbakonam, to work out the arrangements in detail.

The officers, including a couple of them from Chennai, were selected as they had worked in the district before.
