City Police will deploy around 21,000 personnel for the smooth conduct of Ganesh festival. City Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar said policemen would be deployed in a planned manner across the city during the 10-day festival and requested the public to cooperate with the police to ensure a peaceful conduct of festivities.

He said police had asked the organisers to arrange volunteers and about 9,000 volunteers are expected to come forward and would take care of the queues at pandals coordinating with security personnels. He said closed circuit cameras would be arranged at important pandals and the existing cameras will be used to monitor the processions.

“Wherever necessary, more cameras will be installed on the route before the main procession day to monitor procession on real time,” he said, asking organisers not to collect donations/chandas forcefully from the public. The City Police will provide a colour-coded sticker to vehicles carrying Ganesh idols during the procession for identification of idols from city and neighbouring police commissionerates of Rachakonda and Cyberabad.

Kumar also appealed to the public to install eco-friendly Ganesh idols and to try to immerse them in clean water tanks at their houses. Also he asked the elders to ensure that trucks carrying the youngsters for the immersion procession were not overloaded and to prevent accidents.
