THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPM state committee on Saturday called for strict vigil on the functioning of police department in the wake of series of law and order issues. The two-day state committee meeting which began at the AKG Centre discussed the report placed by Kodiyeri Balakrishnan on the  functioning and performance of the LDF Government based on the discussions held in the  secretariat. It was pointed out that there are people in the police force who are followers of RSS-BJP and UDF and they cannot be kept away. The functioning of the police department needs to be monitored closely.

The secretariat members on Friday had criticised a section of police officers saying that they were behaving as if the government had not changed. The slow decision-making process in many of the departments also came in for sharp criticism at the meeting. It was felt that the implementation of various projects, schemes and programmes was sluggish and needs to be speeded up. Several members also pointed out the slipshod manner in which the offices of various ministers were functioning.

 

The secretariat members felt that while many departments had performed badly during the past ten months, the home department came in for sharp criticism because of serious lapses in dealing with cases of atrocities and sexual assault against women and children. While the state committee was generally satisfied with the overall functioning of the government, many members felt that the ruling dispensation had not risen to the expectations of the people. Coming as it is just two months before the first anniversary of LDF Government, the party review is considered significant. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan had replied to the discussions on Friday.
