Chandigarh: After gaining power in center BJP lead states are launching the various campaigns to spread Hindutva on the names of hindu gods and other hindu’s personalities. Now haryana bjp governemant on the lines of UP chief minister aditiya nath yogi, re- launched a opratin durga to check unwarranted activities of ‘romeos’ and ensure women’s safety.
During the fortnight- long first phase of the exercise starting May 1, police squads from local police stations will keep a vigil at schools, colleges, markets, malls, and other crowded places, according to director general of police (DGP) BS Sandhu.
“The objective is to ensure safety of women. Operation Durga is not about moral policing,” the newly-appointed DGP said in his maiden press conference after holding a series of meetings with senior police officers to review the law and order situation in the state, reads a quote in Hindustan times.
Two weeks back, Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s flying squads, along with the CID, had started Operation Durga, which was stopped within a week. Operation Durga is akin to Uttar Pradesh government’s Operation Romeo.
Asserting that curbing crime against women will be among his top priorities, the DGP assured that police will not harass anyone and that couples in parks will neither be bothered nor targeted under this drive.
The DGP said that earlier this exercise was launched for a limited days and now the police will continue this drive. “This will now be a continuous movement,” he said.
“The objective is to provide a safe environment for everyone and make Haryana safe for women,” DGP Sandhu said, pointing out that the state government had posted five women IPS officers as superintendent of police (SP) in districts such as Hisar, Rewari and Palwal, and will help run the operation smoothly.
