GUWAHATI:

The Assam government on Sunday said it will construct 100 pre-engineered building (PEB) police barracks across the state.

Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal laid the foundation stone of a PEB police barrack at Jengraimukh in Majuli, along with virtually conducting the same exercise for 71 other barracks in different parts of the state.

Sonowal said the state government has taken up construction of 100 PEB police barracks in the first phase.

"The work for the remaining 28 police barracks will be started after the completion of the election process in BTR and Tiwa Autonomous Council areas. The scheme has been implemented under the MOITRI initiative of the state government and it will be executed by Housefed," he said.

Sonowal said the Assam government has been strengthening police infrastructure through the MOITRI scheme, and a lot of success has been achieved in facilitating and enabling a good working environment for the personnel. (PTI)
