Indore (Madhya Pradesh): As many as 200 women constables have been deployed at major intersections in the city to tackle the problem of traffic congestion, a police official said on Thursday. The public mindset that only male police personnel can control traffic needs to change, one of the women constables said. Indore is the most populated city in the state and has the maximum density of vehicles. A traffic police official said 200 women constables have been deployed at major intersections after special training to handle city traffic.

Constable Sunita Mandloi, seen making motorists strictly follow traffic rules at the busy Regal Square said, ‘We want Indore to be number one in the country in following traffic rules, just like cleanliness.’ ‘Sometimes riders break traffic rules and argue with women constables, but we are able to deal with them as we have been trained for it,’ she said. Sonali Soni, another constable trained to handle traffic said, ‘Now time has changed. We have to change mindset of the public that only male police personnel can control traffic.

Men and women in the police department are given the same training.’ Soni said she would work with 100 per cent dedication and make motorists follow traffic rules. Male traffic police personnel have praised the passion of women constables towards duty. Assistant sub-inspector (ASI) in the traffic department, Raghuvir Singh Meena said, ‘Women constables are doing good job in handling traffic. They work side by side with male colleagues.’
