KCR government dismisses Home Ministry to form a joint police force to oversee law and order and hate crime

Telangana State Government dismissed the suggestion of the Union Home Ministry to form a joint police force with Andhra Pradesh to control law and order situation and to set up a crime cell.

Principal Secretary (GAD) of Telangana Government Ajay Mishra conveyed the Union Home Ministry that Hyderabad was made the joint capital of the twin cities and the Governor has been entrusted with the responsibility of law and order situation. The common capital area is an integral part of Telangana state. There cannot be any joint force in the common capital area as law and order is a state subject and the police officers of another state cannot have any jurisdiction here, he said.

The Telangana Government also rejected the proposal to set up a special cell headed by an officer not below the rank of IGP. It may be recalled that the Centre has proposed that police force of Hyderabad and Cyberabad Commissionerates shall be a joint entity comprising elements from Andhra and Telangana on fair share basis in supervisory posts like Deputy Commissioners, Additional Commissioners and Commissioners.
