To prevent any kind of threat, police have prepared an anti-terrorist squad and will deploy 12 platoons of police force. As many as 40 police officers will be in-charge of Z-security category and state guests scheduled to attend the event.

"We have already intensified our presence on the spot to keep an eye on any kind of sabotage before and during the event," said Cuttack-Bhubaneswar Commissioner Satyajit Mohanty.

Not only security, police have also made special arrangements for traffic management. For easing traffic near the conclave the authorities have prepared two medians. Special parking facilities have also been created for VIPs.
