LAST MINUTE PREPARATIONS ARE GOING ON IN LUCKNOW AHEAD OF INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY :

Last minute preparations were underway to host the third International Yoga Day event in Lucknow on June 21 in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lead some 55,000 people in performing ‘asanas’ (yogic postures) at the Ramabai Ambedkar Maidan.   Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will lead a rehearsal of the IYD function at the programme venue today and is himself monitoring all arrangements.  “Police chiefs of adjoining districts of Lucknow have also been alerted to take preventive measures, especially in the wake of call given by Bharatiya Kisan Union to stage a dharna on highways,” a police official said. Officials of the Lucknow administration said that more than 400 CCTV cameras will be installed.  The main programme will begin around 6.30 am, for which the state government has sent invites to senior political leaders including former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav (of Samajwadi Party), BSP supremo Mayawati, and former chief ministers and governors.  The rediff.com : 19th.
