Madhya Pradesh has decided to create 2,000 new jobs in the state’s police force.

The decision was taken at the state cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Tuesday. The creation of these new posts will cost the state an additional Rs 175 million.

“Of the 2,000 new posts, 502 have been reserved for Naxal-affected areas, 856 for communally sensitive districts, 234 for newly-created districts, 138 for the Special Task Force and 20 for the Economic Offences Wing,” said an official press release.

The meeting also reviewed setting up of 400 forest check posts.

The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has recently come under attack for failing to check crime in the state including rapes, dacoity, abductions and murders.,000900010009.htm
