Itagar, May 5: Aruchal Pradesh Home Minister Tanga Byaling today claimed that the law and order situation in the state has drastically improved in the last one year with the state police not committing any lapses in its responsibilities.
“With limited resources and manpower, our police are doing commendable job far better than Delhi police in controlling crime and crimils,” Byaling said while awarding a few police personnel for their commendable success in solving an extortion case in troubled Tirap district of the state, at police headquarters here Tuesday evening. Exhorting the cops to do their duties with utmost sincerity and dedication, the home minister said that a slight mistake would ruin their image as well as that of the state. “Our police are working to the expectation…. The cases of extortion and kidpping have been significantly decreased in the last one year due to the dedicated service rendered by the police,” he said.
Referring to the bandh mece in the state, Byaling said that sooner or later the mece would end if the public extend their support to the government by defying bandh calls by various organizations of the state on petty issues.
“Organisations cannot curtail the fundamental rights of the people by giving bandh calls which greatly affects the common people particularly the wage earners,” he said and appealed the organizations to resort to other means instead of bandh calls to register their protests.
He also directed the police to strictly enforce vehicle checking in the state capital and take action against the bike riders including female who wear masks in their face to conceal their identity.
