Dr. JP congratulates police on nabbing ‘terrorists’


Lok Satta Party national President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today congratulated the Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu police on preventing terrorist strikes by taking into custody suspected terrorists at Puttoor in Chittoor district.

Dr. JP said that the police attract a lot of flak when they fail to prevent a terrorist attack. But in many cases they succeed in foiling terrorist designs by staking even their lives. Nearly 1000 police personnel die every year in our country in the discharge of their duties.

Dr. JP demanded that the police force be modernized at a fast pace with provision of latest technology and equipment, better transport and quality training. The police should be provided autonomy and insulated from political interference.

Dr. JP said that the police should be strengthened to ensure safety and security for citizens and maintenance of rule of law.
