Chief Minister Pema Khandu urged the police personnel to always maintain dignity and respect and not to indulge in corruption.
Khandu inaugurated the headquarters of 5th India Reserve Battalion (IRBn) in Pasighat on November 25th, 2019. He said not all are bad but few of them and must be identified. He also exhorted the IRBn personnel to maintain the highest reputation of their battalion.
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister congratulated the police department for the new sprawling campus of the youngest IRBn battalion in Arunachal.
Chief Minister said the state government always has a high priority for providing best infrastructures and facilities for police personnel. “Permanent infrastructure with all facilities and basic amenities will be made available to police personnel posted in all districts,” he said.
Chief Minister thanked the policemen for helping make Arunachal as a progressive state. He particularly thanked those policemen who are silently discharging their duty diligently and honestly and whose contributions never got highlighted through medals. He called such policemen ‘Unseen Heroes’ who are working so much for the development of the state without the desire to be noticed.
To strengthen the IRBn force, Chief Minister said a regular commanding officer will be posted instead of ‘dual charges’ assigned to a police officer. He also urged for regular refresher course for police officers to keep them motivated always and to be made them aware of the latest trends.
Following the meeting, the Chief Minister had ‘bada khana’ (big feast) with the jawans of the 5th IRBn battalion and had interactions with them.
