Breath of freedom amid constraints of security

Amid tight security, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort on the occasion of 72nd Independence Day. Mr. Modi unfurled the national flag amid 21 gun salute at 7.30 a.m. The national capital was on high alert and a multi-layer security system was in place around the Red Fort. Various entry points were sealed and movement of heavy vehicles was restricted. The 3-km area across the Red Fort was sanitised for general vehicles. Buses, cars and government vehicles with valid passes were allowed to enter. NSG commandos and women commandos of the Delhi Police’s SWAT unit were deployed for security in and out of the Red Fort.As anticipated by the security agencies, Mr. Modi, after delivering his speech, while moving out of the Red Fort in his cavalcade, got out of the vehicle to meet school children who had performed at the event. He interacted with them while security persons were seen having a tough time in controlling over-enthusiastic children who tried to shake hands with the Prime Minister.
