Presiding over the meeting at the State Police headquarters here in the afternoon, Director General of Police (DGP) Dr RP Sharma in a video conferencing with the police commissioner, Range IGs, DIGs, DCPs and SPs, said that top leaders and VVIPs would visit the state to campaign. This will require adequate and full proof security arrangement.

The DGP further said that the Government of India, as per threat perceptions has categories and prescribed scale of security arrangements for different national and state level political leaders.
