Modi’s Vivekananda Rock meditation: 3,000 cops deployed 

More than 3,000 police personnel have been deployed as a five-tier security arrangement has been in place at Vivekananda Rock.

This afternoon (30 May), Prime Minister Narendra Modi will travel from New Delhi to Thiruvananthapuram and then to Kanyakumari. 

Unlike the previous times where he’s travelled to the South for election campaigning, this time around the visit is personal. 

The PM is going on a meditation retreat for three days, until 1 June, to the Vivekananda Rock Memorial.

PM Modi’s meditation visit to the Vivekananda Rock Memorial is quite similar to the one he undertook in 2019 and in 2014 after the Lok Sabha election seasons ended. While in 2019, he visited Kedarnath, he visited Pratapgarh in 2014.

On Tuesday, PM Modi announced that he would be visiting and meditating at Kanyakumari’s Vivekananda Rock Memorial , from 30 May to 1 June to mark the culmination of BJP’s Lok Sabha election campaign.

For the unknown, the Vivekananda Rock Memorial is a monument and a popular tourist destination located approximately 500 metres off the mainland of Vavathurai. Situated on a big rock, it is surrounded by three water bodies – the Arabian Sea, the Bay of Bengal, and the Indian Ocean.
