GUWAHATI, Jan 1 � Inaugurating the Police Commissionerate at the City Police Reserve today, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said the new setup is about vesting the police with more responsibility and not with more power.

�The Commissionerate has been given more responsibilities to serve the people, especially the weaker section and make Guwahati crime-free,� Gogoi said.

The Chief Minister also said that the trust of the people on the police force must be restored and Guwahati should emerge as a model city.

�Safety of women and children, besides other weaker sections, must be a priority for the law enforcing agencies. In today�s time, when the population growth has been distinct in Guwahati, civil policing should work in tandem with the new setup that is placed to fetch better results,� he said.

�Policing today should be citizen-centric and we should also work together to address the issues related to public welfare. We will have to be sensitive to serve the public better,� Gogoi asserted.

�Our aim is to contain insurgency and other law-and-order issues in an effective manner and I believe that the Commissioner of Guwahati Police Jyotirmoy Chakravarty would do full justice in this regard,� he said.

Chakravarty, who took charge formally from outgoing Senior Superintendent of Police (City) AP Tiwari at the function, said the new Police Commissionerate under him would strive to serve the interest of the weaker section and issues like safety of children and women would be a priority.

�There certainly lie challenges ahead of us, but the greater challenge is to live up to the aspiration of the people,� the new Guwahati Commissioner said.

Earlier, Director General of Assam Police Khagen Sarma said that although the idea was floated way back in 1993, the concept of a Commissionerate became a reality today.

�We have finally embarked on a landmark day and the credit goes to the Chief Minister for motivating, inspiring and for being a guiding factor. The new setup will be about greater responsibility and accountability,� the DGP added.

Chief Secretary Jitesh Khosla, MGVK Bhanu, Principal Secretary (Home and Political) and a host of other senior officials were present on the occasion.
