 Puducherry Lt Governor Kiran Bedi on Sunday came out with a new strategy--'6P concept'-- to protect women and children against crimes.

The concept of 6P would bring together six important contributors or pillars - 'parents or principals, police, prosecution or courts, politicians, prisons and press'- as a collective hub to prevent crimes against the two vulnerable sections, Bedi, a former IPS officer, said.

Bedi was speaking after releasing a directory covering details of various non-governmental organisations functioning in Puducherry at a joint meeting of representatives of NGOs at Raj Nivas.

A Raj Nivas release said these 'six pillars' would be steered by the Lt Governor, the Chief Minister or Welfare Minister and Chief Secretary or Welfare Secretary.

Welfare Minister M Kandasamy, who was present, lauded the initiatives of the Lt Governor.

He said the council of ministers "is on the same page as the Lt Governor and will render their utmost cooperation.
