Honour promise to transfer Pune police chief: Sena to Govt
Pune: Shiv Sena Thursday said the Maharashtra Government should uphold the "assurance" on transfer of Police Commissioner Satyapal Singh for his alleged failure to manage law and order situation in the city, as stated by Minister of State for Home Ramesh Bagve in the Assembly recently.
Bagve, on April 20, told the House during a discussion that Singh would be transferred, taking into consideration sentiments expressed by angry members on the issue of rising
crime rate in Pune.
However, Cabinet Minister for Home R R Patil later contradicted his junior, saying he was not aware of any such decision transferring the Police Commissioner.
Sena spokesperson and MLC Neelam Gorhe told reporters today that since Bagve`s announcement in the House cannot be construed as his personal opinion, the government was expected to honour it notwithstanding Patil`s clarification.
Singh alone could not be held responsible for the rising crime in the city, Patil had said.
Meanwhile, Congress MLC Mohan Joshi has demanded setting up of fast-track courts in Pune to try the accused in sex crimes against women which have witnessed an alarming increase in recent times.
