Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar did not hold their words back while talking against the police top brass of the state. The discussion took place during a meeting with the senior police officials in Bengaluru on Tuesday. 

The chief minister reiterated the fact that there will be no moral policing, and that the current government will put an end to it. “The police must not look at crimes through the prism of this religion or that religion. All people must be viewed equally and must be given equal protection,” said the chief minister. 

“What we have told the police is that we need to have a people-friendly administration. The police have to be people friendly and, secondly, they must behave in a courteous manner with people who come to the police station,” continued the Chief Minister. 

The CM and Deputy CM also said that the duty of the attending the crime would not just be of the local inspector but also of the deputy commissioner of police in the range. “Whatever ollegal activities occur in a region whether it is rowdyism, gambling… and other illegal activities, the officers will also be held responsible,” said Siddaramaiah.

“There will be no room for the saffronisation of the police department in our regime. There have been instances in Mangalore, Vijayapura, and Bagalkot, where policemen have posed in saffron attire and insultred the police department. If you have respect for the country, you must wear the national flag,” said the Deputy Chief Minister in the meeting.
