Chief Minster of Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav launched Dial 100 service for better policing in Lakhnow today. After coming to power he once tried to dial 100 and no one responded and since then it became top priority for his Samajwadi Government he said. The law and order situation has been an issue for the state for long time and since he became Chief Minster he was criticised for the same too after every incident of rape and murder crimes.
What is DIAL 100 Service?
People in UP can now just dial 100 to report the crime and police will reach in 10-15 mins in urban areas and 15-20 mins in rural areas claims officials.
The women only call center is setup which will answer the call from people reporting crime. Thousands of mobile phones, bikes and cars are bought and modern hi-tech equipments will be provided to police so that they can be effective. The service will be available in very few cities and rural areas in the begining and then expanded to the rest of Uttar Pradesh very soon.
