November 23, 2009 21:09 IST

Union Home Minister P Chidambaram will visit the city on the first anniversary of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and inaugurate a martyrs' memorial.

"Chidambaram will inaugurate the memorial at the police gymkhana here on November 26," Chief Minister Ashok Chavan told media-persons in Mumbai. On the same day, a Suraksha March (security parade), of police and various security agencies, has been organised from Gateway of India to Girgaum Chowpatty. "The police force would showcase its newly-acquired modern weaponry to instill faith in the citizens that we are ready to face a 26/11-like crisis in a better way," Chavan said.

The government has also planned a programme in the memory of martyrs and victims of the attack, in the presence of their family members, at Gateway of India to mark the anniversary, the chief minister said.

The Government is also launching its first batch of 'Force One' commandos on the lines of National Security Guards on tuesday at suburban Goregaon.
