Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government, suffering from an image crisis, has come up with a unique plan to inspire the police force. UP ADG, Law and Order, Arun Kumar has issues a 5-page circular asking for special screenings of films like 'Dabangg', 'Ab Tak Chhappan' and 'Singham'.
Arun Kumar believes such movies which show a policeman as a superman will motivate policemen to perform their duties better. The UP police circular says that the public expects policemen to do their job with good intention, how they do it is immaterial.
This comes at a time when the image of the UP Police has taken a severe beating with many instances of police insensitivity and riots in several places.
