Editorial-No pockets to show
No pockets to show
Pockets are very convenient spaces that can
conceal many things from prying eyes. They can also act as repositories for what the deft fingers get hold of from others’ pockets. That makes it an apt subject of finding out what is inside the pockets. So, when CIAA directed the Tribhuvan International
Airport authorities to provide pocket-less uniforms to its staff, it meant business. And, giving such directive meant that pockets are notorious at the international airport premises. It wouldn’t have gone to
deprive the uniforms of pockets had there not been an urgency to do such to enhance the credibility at the welcoming zone.
But, one may wonder whether the uniforms
sans pockets would root out theft of passenger goods at the airport. This is moot question. If only the
management at the airport, where there has to be
coordination among the various security agencies, could get that in place, the free for all would come to a stop. The fast buck making syndrome at the airport is an open secret, which the anti-graft body wants to stop. Whether the results are as desired will only be known when the dress code takes effect.
