During Telangana’s formation in 2014, it was predicted that the state would face law and order issues. Several politicians also predicted Telangana would become dominated by Naxals.
In eight years, it has not only proven to be one of the safest cities in the country but also attracted investments by reducing crime.
Hyderabad has the lowest crime rate among southern metro cities, and Bangalore is ranked fifth among the safest cities, with 4,272 crimes per million population.
Hyderabad has remained the safest city due to a series of initiatives undertaken by the State government, led by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, to effectively maintain law and order in the State since Telangana’s formation in 2014.
After taking power in 2014, the TRS government prioritized law and order and provided the department with the necessary infrastructure, including new patrol vehicles. The state government has also increased the amount spent on stationery, including white papers, for each police station, according to officials.
