Bhubaneswar: The State Capital, the Temple City and Silver City Cuttack are gifted with a unique blend of ancient heritage and urbanisation. It is expected from the people of the Twin City to be disciplined, organised and lead a happy life.

"As the Police Commissioner of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack, it will be my responsibility to ensure that people do not face any form of inconvenience and insecurity," Police Commissioner Sudhanshu Sarangi said.

In an exclusive interview to OMMCOM NEWS, the newly appointed CP said that police patrolling will be at its peak during the dead hours of the night and he would lead from the front. "I am not going to sit at the office. I have been a field man in my career and shall be with my team and officers at all times," he said.

“Be it a petty crime such as blowing loudspeakers in public place, drunk rowdies creating nuisance or serious to heinous ones, every law-breaker shall be dealt with firmly. Our target will be to provide a safe, secure, peaceful and crime-free environment in the Twin City,” Sarangi said.

Sharing his thoughts about the prevailing traffic issues, Sarangi said that both Cuttack and Bhubaneswar will need separate approaches. "Cuttack is an old city with large number of lanes and by-lanes meeting main roads. On the other hand, Bhubaneswar is expanding in length and breadth and number of vehicles have increased proportionately," he said.

“We will strategise to organise and effectively utilise the area under flyovers which are in dilapidated conditions. We will hold regular discussions with different agencies of State and Central Government to ease out traffic problems,’ the Police Commissioner said.

Sarangi said that the Twin City police will be on full alert during the upcoming puja season. “Our enforcement and crime-control drives have already started and we will ensure that the Puja season is safe and incident-free,” the Twin City CP concluded.
