Is it really necessary that the police department should be controlled by the local political administration? That is, by the chief minister or any other minister?
We all know that this was done to keep them under the control of ruling parties, now as we both know that we know- that is, the public knows and the political parties know that the public knows is not it the right time, and perfect time to free them from any direct control of ruling parties of any state or center?
We will see that police is used as personal guards by political parties, not public servants, the public pays their tax earned money to the income tax department and governments use that money to pay police force aka their personal guards salary. So they don’t even bother if the rest of the public is saved. This scenario needs to be changed. Those days are long gone when public was spoon fed by political parties, now, they have their own thinking, and which mostly is on the right track, so, its high time to change it.
The police department should be controlled by a body free from political influence. Not only that, that body should procure public opinion and suggestions from time to time for a long, long time to transform the present scenario.
Its a shame that people cant depend on police for their protection. It truly is.
