MP DGP seeks Centre`s help in wiping out naxalism
Indore: Madhya Pradesh DGP on Sunday appealed to
the Centre to extend its support in eradicating the Maoist insurgency from the state.
"We should not sit complacent on the naxalite problem and
always be on alert and prepared to tackle it provided the
Government of India extends its continued help and support,"
DGP S K Raut told a press conference here.
The Centre has provided a grant of Rs 25 crore under the
integrated action plan chalked out for eight districts in the
state and has also promised a fund of Rs 30 crore in the next
financial year, he said.
"Huge funds were required for linking roads and setting up
hospitals in these districts," he said.
The DGP also informed that a number of towns in the state
are on a terror radar and the concerned agencies, including
the ATS, are all prepared to thwart terrorists designs.
"A number of cities, including Indore, Ratlam, Ujjain and
Bhopal are on the radar of terrorists," he said.
Beat constables would be provided the mobiles so that
SMS could be sent to them as alert, Raut said.
On clamping down on the violators of traffic rules,
the DGP said the MP police were planning to introduce
"e-challan" in Bhopal and Indore in the first phase.
Police vehicles fitted with GPRS, surveillance camera,
and CCTV camera on signals are also being provided in Indore
to control traffic congestion, he added.
