Bhubaneswar: With an aim to implement the State government’s ‘Mo Sarkar’ initiative in an effective manner from October 2, the Odisha Police has begun its groundwork with DGP BK Sharma on Wednesday directing the top police officials to set up call centres and streamline their functioning in all the districts to address the grievances of public.
