The Navi Mumbai police commissioner, Milind Bharambhe, claimed that they had prepared a force of 3,500 to 4,000 officers for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in the district. This deployment is part of Thane Lok Sabha's security measures, which include assembly segments such as Airoli and Belapur.


Thane and 12 other Maharashtra seats, including six in Mumbai, will be contested in the fifth phase of the Lok Sabha Elections 2024 on May 20, reported PTI. 


According to the report, Bharambhe confirmed that comprehensive security measures had been put in place, including preparation meetings and the arrival of six armed battalions. The deployment consists of around 3,500 to 4,000 police officers, including officials, who have been strategically allocated for 'bandobust' activities.


Furthermore, vigorous operations have been performed under each police station, resulting in the seizure of illegal firearms, narcotics, and contraband. Bharambhe encouraged folks to use their voting rights without fear, the PTI report further stated.

PM Modi's rally in Mumbai

With barely three days until the fifth round of the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi plans to conduct a public rally at Shivaji Park in Dadar, Mumbai, today. Posters welcoming the Prime Minister have been placed by BJP workers, and security around Shivaji Park has been greatly increased.

In a significant move, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) president Raj Thackeray will take the stage beside Prime Minister Modi. Maharashtra Legislative Council leader Chandrashekhar Bawankule offered the invitation to Thackeray, recognising his support for Prime Minister Modi's Viksit Bharat initiative.

Raj Thackeray declared in April that his party will unconditionally support the Mahayuti alliance, which includes the BJP, Shiv Sena, and NCP.

On Wednesday, PM Modi held a big roadshow in Ghatkopar and spoke at rallies in Kalyan, Thane district, and Dindori. Thousands gathered to meet him, singing chants like "Modi Modi" and "Bharat Mata ki Jai" as his convoy travelled through the city.

Maharashtra, the second-largest state in terms of Lok Sabha seats (48), has concluded the first four phases of the election. The second round of voting will take place on May 20. The Lok Sabha Elections 2024 will be held in seven parts, from April 19 to June 1, with vote counting set for June 4.
