no election rally

it started as a joke. that there will be no election rally in the next general election. too risky to have a few thousand people in the open in view of the threats of terrorism. this is no joking matter. just think about it a little. it is so easy to blow up a few bodies in such a crowd. our security people must be having a big headache as to how to manage all the election rallies. the resources are limited and the terrorists are so unpredictable. would there go ahead to ban election rallies? doing so will instantly bring about all the expected criticisms. not doing it, they will put their necks on the chopping blocks should the ugly thing happens. only one incident is all that is needed to bring hell to everyone. the close proximity of so many people together and in an election rally! who is going to shoulder such a heavy responsibility? will we have election rally then?
