  • G.K. Pillai replies: The state governments are the single obstacle to bringing about police reforms in the country. The state governments see the police force as a powerful arm to further their short-term interests and, therefore, have been successful in stymieing police reforms in India for over 50 years. Many in the police force have also gone along for their personal interests and also because there is no accountability.
