For the first time in country, so many Police Personnel have been promoted: Singh

New Delhi, Dec 31 (IBNS): In a rare first, the Government has promoted more than 25, 000 Delhi Police personnel.

The promoted police personnel are mostly of the ranks of Head Constables and Constables.  In another first in police history, provisions have been made for out-of-turn promotions of women police personnel.

In addition, in the coming year, the Delhi Police is likely to have a strength of around one lakh personnel.

Expressing happiness at the promotion of more than 25, 000 Delhi Police personnel, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said, “It is the first time in the country that so many police personnel have been promoted. It is the first time I am experiencing such a large gathering and a mega show like this. I have also written to the Finance Ministry proposing to create 15,000 more vacancies in Delhi Police.” 

The Minister said that he was hopeful that in the coming year, the force will have around one lakh personnel. 

Addressing the Investiture Ceremony of Delhi Police here, Rajnath Singh emphasized the need to make Delhi a safe place. 

The Home Minister told the policemen that the voice and problem of the common man should be heard.

He stressed that “no innocent should feel harassed and a criminal must be punished at any cost.” The Home Minister said that the force should not work under any pressure. 

Referring to his recent visit to China, Rajnath Singh said that in Shanghai, he was informed of the installation of 80,000 CCTV cameras in the city and that the police reached the place of occurrence within minutes.

The Minister hoped that the Capital’s police should also function in this way and ensure that all efforts are made to achieve this.

Rajnath Singh added that he will have a meeting with police officials, as well as retired police officers to chalk out a plan on how to make the national Capital a safer place for the citizens.

Ending his address on a lighter note, the Minister said, “All the wives and sisters of police personnel to enquire from their men about their day-to-day working and their productivity towards the society. The force should work with honesty and policing requires interaction with the common man and hence they should be connected well with them.”

In his address, Commissioner of Police, Delhi, Alok Kumar Verma stressed that “Constabulary is the backbone of police system and when he took charge”.

He added that he was pained to see that Constables have not received their due promotions even after giving 28 years of their service to the force.

The same was the case for Head Constables and other middle rank officers. During his visits to several police colonies, he met many families and witnessed their family members’ despair on this issue.
