In a bid to improve police service in Uttar Pradesh, Dial 100 app was launched by chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and also unveiled the logo of the service, which is slated to begin soon. The government officials claim that the Dial 100 service would ensure that police reach the crime scene in 15 minutes in both rural and urban areas. For the app to yield the services promised, hundreds of new mobiles and four wheelers are being provided to the state police. Speaking at the function, Yadav later said the opposition’s criticism of law and order in the state was biased and asked if they had any better system than Dial 100 to offer.

“They may say anything they want to, but the fact remains that if someone has done any major work for the police, its betterment, integration of modernity and information technology, it is the Samajwadi Party (SP) government,” he added. He also claimed that now other states were also emulating the Dial 100 model of Uttar Pradesh Police. In jest, he also urged his party workers to ensure that the government is not voted out of power and does not have to vacate the Lok Bhawan, the new Chief Minister’s office costing Rs 602 crore that he had inaugurated earlier this week.
Akhilesh Yadav had recently announced that his government will soon begin the Samajwadi Smartphone Scheme , wherein it will distribute free smartphones. The initiative, Yadav says, is for the benefit of all sections of the society. According to an official, the Samajwadi smartphone would be equipped with latest modern technology and would have all facilities of a smartphone, a detailed unified application, which would have audio, video and textual information about the state government.
