Agartala: The state government has decided to recruit 1,100 gram sevaks to build the gap between police and public said chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Thursday.
Speaking during the Police Week Parade- 2020 in AD Nagar Police Lane, Deb said that in order to maintain the law and order situation and to build a good relationship between the public, police and authorities, the state government has decided to recruit gram sevaks.
“A total of 1,100 gram sevaks will be recruited soon in the state. This initiative is to build the gape between the state and public, particularly to maintain law and order in the village areas. The gram sevaks will inform the police authority about the daily incidents happening in their respective villages,” Deb said.
He also said that the present government has given a free hand to the police which has made it easier for them in taking action in time and the crime rate in the state has also decreased.
“The police earlier had to face difficulties to work because of the pressure and political interest of the previous government. Now, the police can work freely and the law and order situation has also improved across the state. The police now work faster and the charge sheets are also placed in time. This shows the development of the state,” Deb added.
Providing the statistics of the total number of cases registered during the last 20 months of the state government, Deb said a total of 987 cases were registered and 4,992 persons were arrested by the police during the investigation.
