Law & Order Situation In Odisha Largely Peaceful: MoS Home

Bhubaneswar: Law and order situation in the State has remained “largely peaceful” and “fully under control” in the current year till date, informed Minister of State (MoS) for Home, Dibya Shankar Mishra.

Mishra said this while replying to the debate on the adjournment motion moved in the State Assembly by BJP members Mohan Majhi, Lalitendu Bidyadhar Mohapatra, Kusum Tete, Nauri Naik, Subash Panigrahi and others claiming that law and order has gone out of control in the State.

Mishra stated that communal harmony has been maintained among various communities.

There has been no significant student unrest in the state, he added.

The Minister stated that festivals of different communities have been observed peacefully amid Covid guidelines.

No significant law and order situation has arisen during the Covid-19 pandemic due to timely intelligence inputs and preventive measures by the police, he added.

Mishra said that despite all sections of the society being affected both economically and socially due to the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic there has been no law and order situation in the State.

The Minister claimed that the Left Wing Extremism (LWE) situation has improved substantially in the last one year in the Swabhiman Anchal of Malkangiri with the establishment of three new camps of the police including the one at Gura Setu.

The camp established at Gura Setu apart from being useful in curbing LWE activities in Swabhiman Anchal has been helpful in providing security cover for the construction of road from Rudakonta of Andhra Pradesh to Malkangiri’s Jodaambo, he added.

He said that a police station has been established at Jodaambo.
