Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday asserted that culprits of crimes against women will be punished swiftly as there will be a separate room now for women complainants in 1,535 police stations across the state.
Adityanath made these remarks while launching “Mission Shakti” programme for women security in Uttar Pradesh.
“To pay homage to the victim of a very unfortunate incident, I decided to kick-off the
Mission Shakti campaign from Balrampur and I am extremely delighted to launch this programme. Mission Shakti aims at guaranteeing security and respect for every woman in the state,” he said.
“There will be a separate room now for women complainants in 1,535 police stations across the state, where a female Police constable will attend them and there will be urgent action on their complaint. Culprits of crimes against women will be punished swiftly,” he added.
In a tweet, the CM’s Office said that initiatives like gender-based sensitisation, training, corporate activity, voice messages, interviews, programmes in Durga Puja and other cultural pandals should be organised to create greater awareness under ‘Mission Shakti’.
