Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal today inaugurated the newly constructed buildings of Majuli police station and Garhmur police station at Majuli along with a guest house for the police personnel. The police stations are built while reflecting the spiritual and cultural mosaic of Majuli in their architecture.
Speaking at the inauguration program, the Chief Minister said that the work culture of the police force has improved tremendously in the last four and half years and an environment has been developed where the public can come to police stations to register complaints without any apprehension. During the previous state government regime, people hesitated to come to police stations and now, police and the public have come closer as police take prompt action on the complaints of the public, he said.
Saying that punishing the criminals swiftly through fast track courts has become possible now, Sonowal underlined the need for police to live up to the public expectation by ensuring safety and security for all. He also highlighted the importance of a conducive environment for the police personnel to work and deliver their services and said that a modernization drive of police stations has been undertaken by the state government through the 'MOITRI' scheme.
