Bengaluru: Karnataka government has given in-principle approval to the Union government’s proposal for implementing “One Nation, One Uniform” for police officials across the country.
Karnataka Home Minister Araga Jnanendra has reportedly agreed to the proposal forwarded by the Union Home Ministry.
The idea was mooted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during a speech recently where he said that the country’s police system should have a single style of uniform. In this context, the Union Home Ministry had sent a proposal to the states.
