Union Home Minister Amit Shah will arrive at the HAL Airport on Saturday. He will directly leave for Bhadravathi in Shivamogga for the ground-breaking ceremony for a new Rapid Action Force (RAF) unit. 

An RAF battalion has been a pending demand for Karnataka for more than two years. The State Government had allocated 50 acres of land at Bhadravathi for the RAF, but the work could not take off. 
“Each time there was a need for RAF deployment, the State had to request the neighbouring states. There are Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and Border Security Force (BSF) units in Bengaluru, but they are training units and not meant for deployment,” said a senior officer on condition of anonymity. 

Home Minister Amit Shah will flag off a fleet of 150 Emergency Response Support Systems - 112 vehicles from the grandstand at Vidhana Soudha. He will then virtually inaugurate the India Reserve Battalion Police (IRBP) unit and the ‘Police Gruha 2025’, under which 10,500 police quarters will be constructed in the State with an outlay of Rs 2,700 crore. 

The Cabinet has approved it two days ago. The State Government under ‘Police Gruha 2020’ has constructed 11,000 police quarters at an outlay of Rs 2,200 crore. Out of these, only 600 are remaining to be handed over. The Home Minister may have a review meeting with senior police officers, though the agenda for it has not been decided, said sources from the department.

Shah will stay the night in Bengaluru and will leave for Belagavi on Sunday for a political programme. The police have made elaborate bandobast and stringent security arrangements for the VVIP visit.

Calling the new laws anti-farmer, Pujeri said farmers across the country will not accept such policies.
