An integrated action plan needs to be drawn and the areas where new police stations required to be set should be determined in accordance with the plan. The proposal then should be forwarded to the Government for further action. The Government will surely act on the proposal positively,” declared the Chief Minister.

Fadnavis further said that a stimulator would be installed at the Regional Transport Office in East Nagpur for driving tests of licence seekers. This kind of service is being started for the first time in Maharashtra and the RTO office in East Nagpur had bagged the honour, stated the Chief Minister.
