Commissionerate Police and the Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) have signed an MoU for the safety and security of women and girls in Bhubaneswar.
The MoU has been signed by Police Commissioner Saumendra Priyadarshi and the head of FICCI.
As per the MoU, FICCI will collaborate with Commissionerate Police for the protection of working-class women and girls in the Capital City. The women and girls working at various companies in Bhubaneswar can lodge their safety and security-related complaints through ‘Reach Her App’ and a Whatsapp group. Based on the complaints, the police will take immediate action.
As per Commissionerate Police sources, the MoU has been signed to accelerate the implementation of the plan.
“As per the MoU, Commissionerate Police will ensure the safety and security of the girls and women in Bhubaneswar. However, working-class women and girls need to be taught about their physical and mental well-being. They also need to be taught how to use social media, how to prevent cybercrime, and many more things. We have signed an MOU with FICCI in this regard,” said Police Commissioner Saumendra Priyadarshi.
Shading more light on the MoU, FICCI member Poonam Mohapatra said, “Due to lack of knowledge many girls are falling prey to cybercrime these days. Commissionerate Police have taken a huge step to prevent those crimes. Women and girls should be given equal importance, opportunity, and knowledge at their workplaces. We will work in these aspects.”
