Telangana Police busted myth of rise in Maoist activity: CM

IANS  |  Hyderabad 

Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Friday said that the state police has proved wrong those people who created apprehensions that if state is formed, there will be increase in activities and and order problems.


The CM praised police for controlling Maoism and extremism and proving those wrong who feared that these problems would rise once state comes into being.

Addressing a meeting of top police officers here, he said that police busted this myth and the credit should go to them.

"The Prime Minister and Union Home Minister on several occasions have hailed the Police which made me happy and proud," the CM said.

"The Police also working for the national security. The youngest state of India has become the greatest police in India," he said in remarks seen as a counter to senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh's recent comments alleging that the state police created a fake website of terror outfit Islamic State (IS) to frame Muslim youth.

Rao claimed that since the and order situation in the state is good, investments are pouring in and the state has become a destination for the investments.

He said several measures have been initiated for strengthening police and more measures will be taken in future including appointment of 15,000 personnel.

He urged police to come to the rescue of the helpless and help them like God who helps those who cannot help themselves.

The CM asked police to stand by the oppressed, the poor and the victimised.

Police who have successfully eradicated playing cards and illicit liquor should also focus on controlling fake and spurious items, he said.

"There is adulteration in milk, eggs, rice, turmeric powder, red chilli powder etc., there are fake passports and certificates... police should concentrate on this," he said.
