Police Commissioner Throws Open Twitter Platform To Masses, Says ‘Ask Your CP’ Anything
Bhubaneswar: At a time when police action or inaction is frequently being questioned and the cops are shying away from responding, Twin City Police Commissioner Sudhanshu Sarangi has come up with a novel concept of facing it all. He has made his twitter handle open to all users for questioning him.
Time and again, Sarangi has been hailed for his responsive administration which is evident through his interactions with the public on social networking sites.
In yet another attempt to encourage interaction with the masses, Sarangi today took to his Twitter account to host information about a LIVE session on AMA (Ask Me Anything) which, he said, he would be holding on Twitter on December 14, 2019. In order to strike a conversation with the people, Sarangi asked them to use hashtag #AskYourCP to send their questions. The deadline for submitting questions is December 12 (8 PM).
“In continuing efforts to reach out to citizens I will be holding a Live Q&A on Twitter. Hope to answer as many questions as possible. Please hashtag #AskYourCP to send your question by 12 Dec. Looking forward to the session on 14 Dec at 5 PM,” tweeted Sarangi.

He interacts with children as well. Recently when Sarangi met two kids- Aahrav & Aanyaa, at his office, the siblings were curious to know why children in India are scared of cops. Here’s how Sarangi responded to their ‘innocent’ queries.
Q. Singapore children are scared of strangers, not the Cops. Why are children in India scared of cops?
A. Fear is created by elders, police is used to scare crying babies without realising how damaging creating such fear is for society, we must all work for a new India free of such irrational fear.
Q. What do you study to be a cop?
A. Anything, but you have to be very good at studies to join the police. Once you join the police we will then train you as a Cop.
