Poor response to police request to set things right at mohallas adopted

The request was to look into the haphazard parking of vehicles near Ganapati Temple  adding to public woes. Another letter was forwarded from the same station to Regional Transport Office (RTO) to ponder on the increasing fad among vehicular users- fancy number plates. However, reply to the correspondence has still remained elusive
On April 18, 2010, the then DG and IG of Police Dr Ajai Kumar Singh launched a State-wide programme from Mysore-Mohalla adoption (it can be construed as wards in urban limits and also slums in other place). Likewise, every 16 police stations here adopted one locality each for a period of one year. The objective was to bridge the gap between police and public. Moreover, the police personnel will take people’s problems to the departments concerned and try to sort it out. In case the problem was severe it would be dealt by sub-inspector or inspector or Dy SP/ ACP. Eventually, it had created high hopes among the public who always run from pillar to post. 

But till date, if sources are to be believed, though the police have been doing their part of job, the departments to whom the problems are addressed are yet to respond in majority of the cases.

Like V V Puram, which has adopted Nandagokula in V V Puram third stage, there are other stations too who narrate similar experience.

Barring KSRTC, Mysore divisional controller, no other departmental heads have bothered to respond.

 The VV Puram station had sent a missive quoting the grievances of the public to transport corporation- to stop buses near second main, Contour road. The divisional controller has written to the station stating- the plea has been taken care of.

Amid this, it’s already a year, and the programme is due for renewal with police stations yet to adopt new areas for the current year.

When contacted police commissioner Sunil Agarwal said he is aware of the matter and will convene all departments heads meeting to improve coordination. He also informed that the list of new areas to be adopted is being readied.
