Gudivada: Civil Supplies Minister Kodali Venkateswara Rao (Nani) has said that the police department formed Mahila Mithras to help women and appealed to the women and girls to avail the services provided by Mahila Mithras. He said the women can directly approach the Mahila Mithras and can seek their help from the police.
Nani addressed the Mahila Mithra programme organised at Alankruta Function Hall in Gudivada on Thursday.
The Minister along with the Deputy Inspector-General of Police ( Eluru Range) AS Khan and District Superintendent of Police M Ravindranath Babu, inaugurated the Mahila Mithra meeting. Several hundred Mahila Mithras, students, police and local women came to participate in the programme. Speaking on the occasion, Minister Nani expressed concern over the increase of crime against women in the society. He said many women are facing harassment but they were not approaching the police for help due to social problems. He said even the family members raise objection when women go to the police station to get assistance.
He said that the police department launched the Disha app and asked the women and girls to download the app to get immediate assistance from the police.
Eluru Range DIG AS Khan said Dasha app works basing on GPS system and will be very useful to the women. Superintendent of Police Ravindranath Babu said the Mahila Mithra was started in 2017 in Vijayawada by present DGP and the former police commissioner of Vijayawada Gautam Sawang.
