Bias against minorities is inimical to effective policing: PM

Addressing the Police Chief’s conference here, Dr. Manmohan Singh called upon the police force that perception of any bias by the law enforcement and investigation agencies against minorities is inimical to effective policing. “The existence of such a perception is inimical to effective policing, which must necessarily draw upon the confidence and cooperation of all sections of the population it serves. I would like you to consider ways and means to deal with the causes of such perceptions wherever they may exist” PM said.

The Prime Minister advocated for better connectivity between Centre and State agencies to strengthen information sharing network and using latest technologies for communication.

Dr. Singh said the process of dialogue and democracy needs to be given a chance in Jammu and Kashmir to secure a just and honourable settlement of issues, meeting aspirations of all sections of people in the State.

Dr. Manmohan Singh called upon the Centre and the States to work in tandem to effectively deal with the menace of left wing extremism. He said for this a huge and coordinated effort is required for a decisive change .
