Experts from the Judiciary, Legislature and the Executive have come together to start an organisation that aims at resolving the common man's issues, either with the government or with private bodies.
AP Citizens Grievances Redressal Bureau (APCGRB) was launched here on Saturday. "Through counselling and rehabilitation, we would try to resolve the grievances of the downtrodden and try promoting harmony, peace and justice in the society,” former DGP P Ramulu said. The Bureau will ensure that social justice is delivered to all the sections of the society and the marginalised sections have been empowered. We hope that the we would be able to preach the 'true meaning' of law and order to the rural and the marginalised communities, he added.
Dr Mohammed Haseebullah, president of APCGRB said that the bureau would try to serve the public and reduce the gap created between the common man and the government in the sixty five years of Independence. There will be intervention and assistance in providing social justice through legal means and representation to the concerned bodies, he informed. He said they would soon set up their head office in Hyderabad and extend the services to districts. “We are going to make extensive use of social media and our online portal for furthering our cause. At present, we are on an hiring spree for commencing the services, he said.
"There is an urgent need to set up 'genuine' counselling centres for the present generation as they have been facing problems due to the competition they face in the globalised world order," former DGP HJ Dora, as the chief guest, spoke on the occasion. “Nobody is bothered about the physical and psychological problems of this generation. The government bodies and NGOs which are there for dealing with their grievances have largely been unsuccessful,” he said.
