Locals, despite certain inconvenience, are happy with the security drive launched by the city police.

"There should be measures taken for security and this is a good step initiated by the police administration, but these security measures will just be taken till the Commonwealth Games." said Hirain Mittal, President of Market Association, Sanjay Place Commercial Centre, Agra.

India is expecting a huge rush of foreigners to watch the mega event, who later may go round visiting popular tourist spots such as Agra and Jaipur.
