It may be noted that of-late, the Maharashtra State Government has been criticised for the atrocities being committed against women in the State. In this regard, the Maharashtra Home Minister had expressed interest in visiting Andhra Pradesh and understanding the Disha Act.
Last week, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah and sought the Centre’s support to the State’s Disha Act.
Earlier this month, CM Jagan inaugurated the first Disha Police Station of Andhra Pradesh in Rajahmundry. Speaking on the occasion, he said that the Disha Police Stations will reduce crimes against women in the State.
