THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Janamaithri Suraksha Project will launch a docu-drama and short film to campaign against the perils of blade mafia. A host of other programmes, including house visits, local-level meetings and seminars would also be taken up to combat the social menace.

The awareness drive to be formally launched by May-end will be monitored by district police chiefs. This is the third such initiative by Janamaithri after the drives on ‘safety of women and children’ and ‘tribal welfare’.     

“The docu-drama will be presented by a team of talents in the police force,” said Janamaithri nodal officer ADGP B Sandhya. “The play is about a family caught in a debt trap. Eight cops will give life to the characters and the drama has two versions of 50 minute and 20 minute durations,” she said.

The Janamaithri Suraksha Project will rope in professionals to produce the short-film which will be screened at the meetings organised by the local police stations and in other public places.

A state-level seminar marking the official launch of the awareness drive will be held in the capital on May 29. 248 community relation officers and nodal officers of all Janamaithri police stations will be given a formal training on the drive during the seminar.

The seminar is based on the theme ‘Janamaithri Against Blade Mafia and Other Financial Frauds’. The speakers include officials of the Reserve Bank of India and law experts, besides top police officers.

Besides campaigning against loan sharks, the programme will create an awareness on safe credit options. “Micro-credit options offered by the Kudumbashree and loan schemes of banks and government-approved agencies would be popularised,” Sandhya said.
