The state assembly will discuss the deteriorating law and order situation in the city in the coming two days. After city BJP MLA Girish Bapat moved an adjournment motion in this regard, Speaker Dilip Walse Patil directed the state government to give a statement on the issue before a discussion on it is initiated in the assembly.
In the adjournment motion under Rule 310, Bapat said the recent incident of dacoity at a jewellery shop in a busy area of the city like Laxmi Road had created fear in the minds of residents.
Bapat said incidents of chain-snatching, crimes against senior citizens and rising robberies and murders in the suburbs had led to a feeling of discontent over the deteriorating law and order situation across the city. He said the government should immediately hold a discussion on the matter in the House.
