NEW DELHI: The Standing Committee of the Ministry of Home Affairs on Tuesday called on the NDA Government at the Centre sufficient funds for the modernisation of police forces so that they become capable of controlling terrorists, left wing extremists and Maoists across the nation.
“Now-a-days, police modernization is the most important subject which has been considered by the country because the primitive arrangements of the police in different states cannot control terrorists, left wing extremists and Maoists. It requires thorough changes in the infrastructure of the police forces in the country,” Pradip Bhattacharya, the Chairman of the Standing Committee said.
“The committee is not buying the argument that merely enhancing the share of the state in the net process of union taxes, 32 percent to 40 percent. The committee is of the view of increasing share of the states in their visible pool of union taxes,” he added.
