He said four companies of Rapid Action Force have also been rushed from Jharkhand to meet any eventuality.
Besides, Subramanian said he had requested the Union home ministrty to make available as many more companies of CPMF as it can "easily."
Asked whether he apprehended any violence, the chief secretary said, "We are doing all this as a precautionary measure. Since parties are levelling allegations about kidnapping of MLAs of a particular party, nobody can say everything will remain peaceful."
