The safe city concept is based on flawed principles. When the funds to provide security are for the entire country, why are they all exerted to one particular area? Furthermore, for providing security on modern lines, latest technological devices have to be imported. This would exhaust our country’s resources. A more sustainable and effective way to improve security conditions would be to bring reform to institutions like the police force and the judiciary. In this way, security can be provided for the entire state. These measures would also improve state functioning in the true sense.
