MP govt plans separate security force for industry
The Madhya Pradesh government is planning to create a security force to meet the security requirements of large number of industries coming up rapidly in the state.
Bhopal: On the lines of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), the Madhya Pradesh government is planning to create a security force to meet the
security requirements of large number of industries coming up rapidly in the state.
"We felt a need to provide adequate security to the industrial sector. Therefore, we are working on creating a force like CISF to fulfil the security needs of the large number of industries, which were making huge investments in the state," Home Minister Uma Shankar Gupta told this to a news agency today.
"At present, private security guards are hired by industries for security cover. But, they are not well-trained and organised and therefore, the Government thought of creating a force on the lines of CISF," he said.
"Like CISF, we will also provide security to the industrial establishments on payment basis," he said, adding that the strength of the force and other details will be finalised, based on the requirement.
When asked about the allegation levelled by Congress general secretary, Digvijay Singh that senior RSS and BJP leaders were involved in the murder of Sunil Joshi who was accused in a number of bomb-blasts in the country, Gupta said, "Singh has a habit of remaining in news by stating baseless things. Nobody takes him seriously these days in the state."
