Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said today at a press conference that the state would build “digital de-addiction centres” to help children addicted to computer gaming reintegrate into mainstream society as part of a larger child-friendly effort.
Because of his efforts, the total number of “child-friendly” police stations in the state has now reached 126.Mr. Vijayan made the major announcements while inaugurating newly constructed or renovated police department buildings.
He claimed that the police had left a lasting legacy of public service through their excellent work and that they could demonstrate their superiority in serving the public through actual experience.
According to the Chief Minister, “digital de-addiction centres will be built at the request of the police to bring minors addicted to online gaming into the mainstream of society.”
His stance is critical in light of recent headlines about children falling into the trap of online games.
Furthermore, he predicted that significant progress could be made in providing police with basic infrastructure amenities over the next five years.
