IGP’s service sermon to poorly-paid subordinates

Kathmandu, December 11:

Inspector General of Police Hem Bahadur Gurung today appealed to the police personnel not

to compare their services towards the people and the nation, with the wage they received at the end of each month.

“The returns of their dedication and service is certainly not sufficient but it should not be compared with the returns or the amount of money one received,” he said while

addressing the convocation of the 147th batch of Assistant Sub Inspectors here today.

He said the knowledge and skills of the trained police officers would be affected by the polluted environment of the society when they reached their respective fields.

“This sort of absurdities needs to be uprooted,”

he maintained.He also distributed prizes to the outstanding ASI’s during the function.

Additional Inspector General of Police Ramesh Chand Thakuri said the ASI’s now had to face challenges according to their responsibilities. “You have passed the trainings but now you all have to pass real challenges in the field which will be judged by the society,” he said.

“Since the nation is in a transitional phase, maintaining peace and order is a challenge. The new police graduates now should lead the police in the villages and keep up the pride of the police force,” he added.
