The police outpost, upgraded to a full-fledged station at Bellare, was inaugurated by District In-charge Minister B Ramanath Rai on Monday.

Speaking on the occasion, he said police have to treat everyone equally or else the administration machinery will lose its credibility. No one should take law into hands. The anti-social activities will not be allowed to weaken the spirit of the police, he said and added that when someone pickets the police station, the police have to take appropriate measures to control the crowd.

MLC and  Legislative Council Chief Whip Ivan D’Souza said Home Minister Parameshwara said that 20,000 policemen will be appointed. IGP (Western Range) J Arun Chakravarthy said the government gains respect when police perform their duties properly.

MLA Shakuntala Shetty, who presided over the programme, said the police should be people-friendly and should respond to the problems of women. Police should take only constructive criticism. Both the police and the citizens should know their responsibilities well, he stated.

The newly inaugurated police station will cover Mupperita, Kalanja, Balila, Kodiyala, Peruvaje, Bellare, Ivarnadu, Amaramudnoor, Amarapadnoor, Palthadi, Kolthige, Kalmadka, Enmoor, Murulya, Edamangala, Kaniyoor, Belandoor, Savanoor, Kayimina, Kudmaru and Punchappady villages. An outpost at Siddakatte in Sangabettu village of Bantwal taluk was also inaugurated on Monday.

State Social Welfare Board Chairperson Divyaprabha Chiltadka, Sullai TP President Chaniya Kaltadka, Bellare GP President Shakuntala Nagaraj were present.
