Police personnel should be able to make the people feel secure wherever they are: Biren
There should be no political interference of any form in the discipline forces related to security, said chief minister N. Biren Singh while assuring that no personnel or officer would be victimised in the matters of transfer and posting and promotion.
He stated this while speaking as the chief guest at the Passing Out parade of the 47th batch of 2471 Civil Police Constables (Male) at Manipur Police Training College, Pangei in Imphal East District today. He said that the government has already adopted a policy for service transfer policy and the employees will have to be posted in a particular place for a minimum of two years.
He also urged the personnel not to seek help from ministers, MLAs or influential persons’ help to get posted in comfortable areas and he further said that no personnel would be there to serve the interior border areas if every personnel choose to stay at comfortable places.
While saying that pending results of different recruitments is a sign of corruption, Biren said that soon after the new government came to power, pending results of different batches of Manipur Rifles and Manipur Police had been declared which is a clear indication that the present government maintains transparency in its work.
Recalling a case of detection of supplying substandard belts to Manipur Police a few years back, he assured to all the personnel that the present government would never allow anybody to indulge in such irregularity in the future.
He further said that the present government is showing commitment and it is delivering what it had promised to the people and a discussion was convened with the DGP to supply branded uniforms, belts and shoes by inviting bids from reputed firms through an open tender.
The chief minister also asked all the personnel to directly lodge complaints to the Grievance Cell of the chief minister’s secretariat or to the office of the DGP if they come across any substandard supply in future.
The chief minister while saying that different activities are taken up to maintain the police and public relations, further said that police personnel should posses the quality to make the people feel secure, wherever they are.
He also urged the police personnel to refrain from biasness and partiality feeling while performing their duties and also advised them to work as a law enforcing agency.
Stating that security forces as a discipline institutions have a responsibility in bringing a well disciplined society, the chief minister also said that politics should always be kept away from security forces and police personnel so that they may perform their duties in a fair manner.
Stating that police/MR/IRB personnel are serving the state and the nation by travelling to different parts of the state including interior hill areas, the chief minister said that they deserve to receive standard uniforms, belts and shoes.
At present, recruitment for two fresh battalions of IRB is also going on and the state government is putting in best possible efforts to recruit the two batches in a transparent manner without any favouritism and corruption.
