One another thing that I want to bring to discussion is the "fitness" level of police personnel.

We see that a large section of police are physically not fit. Can you please let us know what steps you are taking to ensure that police personnel keeps themselves fit ?

Dear Dr.Acharya,
Hopefully you will provide jobs to people of Kannadigas. Put the advertisements in Kannada targetting village and rural Kannidigas and check for their residence proof. This will definately get your message across Kannadigas. Care for Kannadiga Poorest or Poor by helping them. Hope this time atleast we don't have to see "Singh", "Khare", "Babu" or "Reddy" in Karnataka State Police.
