Haryana minister Anil Vij, however, said Durga Vahini was not on the lines of the anti-Romeo squads in Uttar Pradesh. While strong action will be taken against "eve-teasers", "the government has directed the police to take precautionary measures to avoid causing any inconvenience to the innocent," news agency Press Trust of India quoted the minister as saying.
Moreover, the state government had "already established women police stations in all the districts to ensure women's safety," the minister was quoted as saying.
The Anti-Romeo Squads -- a BJP pre-election promise fulfilled by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath a day after he took oath -- generated a huge debate after allegations of police excesses and moral policing.
Following the lead of Uttar Pradesh, the BJP government of Shivraj Singh Chouhan in Madhya Pradesh also decided to crack down on the 'Romeos'. "We will reform 'majnu-type' of persons. They don't know how to respect (women)... A campaign will be launched against majnus," Mr Chouhan had said.
