New Delhi: Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Wednesday sought a special package from the Centre for his state's police force.

Speaking on the need for raising expenditure on police forces, Hooda said that Gurgaon, Faridabad and Sonepat districts had witnessed rapid economic growth and attracted huge investments from within the country and abroad, he said. The Chief Minister added that these cities needed the same level of policing as Delhi.

"At present, police population ratio of these cities is less than 50 percent of Delhi. Haryana state is a buffer for safety and security of Delhi and as such Haryana Police has to remain active to tackle the problems connected with the National Capital Territory," he said.
