The Director General of Police for Manipur, Rajiv Singh on Thursday stated a collective effort of civil society organisations (CSOs) and the public is much needed to help restore peace and bring back normalcy in the state as the government alone won’t be able to do so.
Addressing the media at the Police Head Quarter, Babupara, the DGP said that the state police have been working round-the-clock trying to maintain law-and-order situation across the state.
“We are civil friendly forces but it is our duty to maintain law-and-order situation by controlling the anti-social elements who are trying to distort peace in the society”, said Rajiv.
He said the state police department has been taking a major role in border fencing work, identification of immigrants in biometrics and during investigation of the various crimes committed in the present turmoil by assisting the investigating agencies.
He appreciated the state government and Chief Minister N Biren Singh for the announcement to establish a women police battalion while controlling any situation.
With the central government monitoring the drugs issues in Manipur, the state police department is also taking necessary steps to uproot the drug menace, he added.
He further said that there is no need for the state government to call for additional central forces in the present turmoil if the state has an adequate number of forces.
