Timely control of tension incidents, said – Police should run special campaign against habitual criminals Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said that there was no communal riot anywhere in Rajasthan and the incidents of tension have been controlled in time. Today there is an atmosphere of tension and unrest in the whole country. Riots took place on Ram Navami in 7 states on a similar pattern.
The country's Home Minister Amit Shah has been requested to conduct a central level inquiry into the deep conspiracy behind it. He asked the top officials of Rajasthan Police and Home Department to strengthen the information system to prevent the repetition of incidents of communal tension in the recent past. Gehlot said that every incident happening in the state should be thoroughly investigated without any discrimination. Use them in law and order in good coordination with Shanti Samiti, CLG, Police Mitras, Village Guards and Security Sakhis to increase community participation.
Surveillance systems should be strengthened using technical instruments like drones and CCTV cameras. While reviewing the law and order in Rajasthan on Wednesday, Gehlot asked the top officers of Rajasthan Police to conduct a special campaign against repeat offenders and habitual criminals. Action should be taken against criminals under NSA, Rajasthan Anti-Social Activities Prevention Act (Rajpasa) and Goonda Act. Be especially vigilant in communally sensitive areas.
Gehlot said that effective and fair action should be taken against the criminals. For this, the police officers along with the local administration should inspect the spot. Also, with the help of media and social media, give correct information about the facts to the public. He said that technical surveillance should also be used. Gehlot said that with the effective action of the police, the faith of law will be maintained and the public will get relief. For this, the officers of police-administration in all the districts and divisions should be vigilant and do crime control. Along with this, monitor to maintain the atmosphere of peace and brotherhood in the state.
The Chief Minister said that the district collectors should inspect the spot jointly with the officers at the district, sub-division and tehsil level. So that small incidents can be prevented from escalating further. He said that there should be trust in the general public and fear should be created among the criminals. Factual status should be given to the people immediately regarding the rumors being spread by those who disturb the social harmony. For this, social media should be used effectively.
He also instructed to connect people working at the intellectual and local level by forming a group on WhatsApp at the beat constable level. In the meeting, the officers told the Chief Minister that since May 4 till now, 218 criminals have been arrested by the police in the state by conducting 'Operation Screws' against those who disturb the communal harmony. So far, action has been taken against more than 1300 criminals. In this campaign, action is being taken against those who are already wanted, involved in communal incidents and spreading communalism on social media.
