PM Modi to address senior police and intelligence officials today
Guwahati: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will today address the senior police and intelligence officials of the country in Guwahati.
Before his address, he will be presented with a briefing in which the officials will introduce a high tech project that will allow citizens to lodge complaints without having to actually visit the police station.
The details of this project will be briefed to Modi today.
This step is being seen as means to empower weaker sections of society, who often bear the brunt of police negligence and callousness
Yesterday the Prime Minister was in Meghalaya flagging off the first train to the northeastern state and favouring privatization of railway stations.
"Railway facilities are the same as they were 100 years back ... Privatize the railway stations and modernise them," he said after flagging off the first train linking Meghalaya.
"I will make it in 10-12 places. Stations should be better than airports as most travellers are poor people. We can easily have trains running below and commercial properties above (floor)," Modi reasoned.
At a time when real estate is very expensive, railways should leverage its properties by allowing private parties to build luxury hotels, restaurants and other facilities, he added. He said once this exercise is completed in these places, the government will carry out modernization of stations across the country.
