‘Haryana 100 Project’ to be implemented by Nov 2018

 Haryana Chief Minister  Manohar Lal said that a new ambitious Rs 400 crore ‘Haryana 100 Project’ will be implemented in the state by November 2018 which will ensure the arrival of police party on crime scene in any part of the state within 15 minutes. This would be enabled through 600 new police vehicles conducting 24X7 patrolling to provide immediate and prompt assistance at the place of incident.
          Mr Manohar Lal who was addressing the police personnel of 84th batch in Police Training Centre, Sunaria in district Rohtak, said that the project would be directly crewed and manned by highly trained professional personnel at the police control room being set up at Panchkula.
          While describing police as the face of the government, the Chief Minister said that their conduct with the public depicts the behaviour and working style of the government. He exhorted them to discharge their duties honestly and efficiently so as to ensure a safe and secure atmosphere in the society and the country. He said that it should be the aim of the police to ensure punishment to the accused so that people live without fear. The criminals should be filled with a sense of fear that they cannot escape punishment at any cost, he added.
          Mr Manohar Lal said that 6000 to 8000 police personnel would be recruited every year in the State to fill the backlog of posts in the police department. He said that during the tenure of the present state government, the percentage of women serving in police has increased from six to 10, which would further be increased to 30 per cent. With this significant increase in the number of women in the police force, the crime against women would be considerably reduced. Effective steps are being taken to keep a check and control crime especially against women. ‘Mitr Kakshs’ are being run by the police to make direct dialogue feasible between police and the public.
          He said that the present state government has so far carried out three recruitment drives in the state in which more than 6000 police personnel have been recruited. All the recruitments were made in a fair and transparent manner. At present, recruitment of 1,474 police personnel is also being conducted in a similar fashion. He said that despite the minimum qualification of 10+2 required to serve in police; over half of the police personnel are those who possess higher qualifications. The State Government has ensured recruitment only on merit basis and completely disbanded the system of using money in the recruitment. He said that similarly, the police personnel by taking a cue from this practice should also serve the society with upmost honesty, dedication and without any fear.
          Earlier, speaking on this occasion, Director General of Police, Mr B.S. Sandhu said that the process for the recruitment of Constables, Women Constables, Sub Inspectors and Deputy Superintendents of Police in the police department would start from this very month. He said that the department has made available adequate number of vehicles, weapons and good quality anti-riots equipments to the police personnel for bringing more efficiency in their working.
