Furthermore we have taken full information about the new Disha Act from the ap government and we will soon bring in a similar legislation in maharashtra as well. Perhaps accompanied by a high-level delegation of senior IPS officials led by director General of police S K jaiswal, the maharashtra home minister first visited the secretariat here and interacted with his ap counterpart.
Moreover he also held discussions with the women and Child Welfare minister taneti vanita, Chief Secretary nilam sawhney and director General of police D gautam Sawang. Later, the visiting delegation met the chief minister at his camp office in Tadepalli. Apparently Sucharita said the Disha Act was the first of its kind in the country and the state government has so far earmarked Rs 87 crore for effective implementation of the law.
