Police stations in india without vehicles/wireless...P2
In three years, the number of police stations without vehicles fell by four times, while the number of stations lacking wireless mobile access increased by twofold. 257 police stations were instructed by the government to go without vehicles in the lok sabha until january 1, 2020, last year. 63 such police posts were informed on Tuesday.
Figures were presented in the lok sabha last year
Minister of State for home nityanand rai had informed the lok sabha last year also about the shortcomings in the police stations on the basis of data till january 1, 2020. Then he had told that there are 257 police stations in the country, which do not have any vehicles, that is, during the three years from 2020 to 2023, about 194 police stations received vehicles. Rai had informed last year that there were no telephones or telecommunication devices in 638 police stations. This number has been reduced to only 10 till now.
Police stations deprived of mobile facilities doubled
The biggest surprise is seeing the figures of police stations deprived of a mobile or wireless facility on the basis of last year's figures. Last year, in a written reply to the lok sabha, nityanand rai had given the number of such police stations as 143, while this year he has given the number of such police stations as 285. In the era of the communication revolution, instead of increasing the number of police stations with a communication link, more than double increase in the number of police stations deprived of it is putting a question mark on the functioning of the government.
