Closer monitoring of jails through CCTV cameras now on the cards

Lucknow: In order to bring more transparency in the functioning of LIS, the Yogi Adityanath government has taken an important decision in the meeting of the Council of Ministers . Accordingly, the Council of Ministers has given green signal to the proposal related to installation of CCTV cameras in all the police stations of the state. State Finance Minister Suresh Khanna informed about the resolutions passed after the meeting of the Council of Ministers held on Friday. He told that a PIL was filed in the Supreme Court to install cameras in all the jails of the country. Seeing its need, it will be implemented in UP. It is notable that in the year 2020, an appeal was made in the Supreme Court for installation of CCTVs in the entire country in the case of Paramveer Saini vs Baljit Singh.

Police action will be in cameras all the time

Finance Minister Suresh Khanna said that according to the resolution passed by the Council of Ministers, five cameras will be arranged in all circle headquarters and district police stations of the state. These cameras will have footage storage of up to 12 months. He told that earlier the total cost of this project was Rs 359 crore, but now the proposal which has been passed by the Council of Ministers, its cost is Rs 144.90 crore. With this decision of the Council of Ministers, the functioning of the police will be more transparent. The proceedings of the police stations will be under the camera all the time.

Table will be reported after 40 years

The Yogi Council of Ministers has decided to table the report of a 40-year-old inquiry committee. The Finance Minister told that Dr. Shamim Ahmed Khan and his supporters had made a strategy to create disturbances in the Idgah. At that time 70 thousand worshipers were offering Eid-ul-Fitr prayers. His intention was to improve his image by defaming the administration by putting its responsibility on Balmiki Samaj and Punjabi Hindus. A one-man inquiry committee was constituted to investigate the matter, which was handed over on 20 November 1983. Its report was not allowed to be placed in the House by the former governments. When this matter came to the notice of the Yogi government, it was decided to table it.
