In Malkangiri district, Swabhiman Anchal (Cut-Off area) used to be the worst affected. Over the last six months, establishment of COB in the month of December, 2019 at Hantalguda and another COB at Darlabeda in the month of March, 2020 has plugged the security vacuum in the area to great extent.
As a step forward in the composite counter – LWE initiatives, Jodambo Police station has been opened today in Swabhiman Anchal of Malkangiri district. It will provide service to the people of five Gram Panchayats of the area i.e Jantri, Andrapalli, Panasput, Jodambo and Gajalmamudi and facilitate uninterrupted developmental activities in the area. This will also facilitate effective counter – LWE operation in the area and help instill a sense of safety and security for the people of the area.
With the functioning of Jodambo Police Station at Jodambo, the Government and administration has covered two-third of Swabhiman Anchal and fruits of development are being provided to the people in Swabhiman Anchal. The developmental initiatives of the Government will continue in future as well and Police is determined to provide a security blanket in the entire Swabhiman Anchal.
