Bihar CM pulls up top police officers, calls for measures to deal with liquor smuggling  1 Month ago

PATNA: Perturbed over the sudden rise in criminal activities in certain areas of the state, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on Friday pulled up top police officers for not dealing effectively with outlaws and liquor smugglers in this dry state. He also asked the DGP KS Dwivedi not to leave everything at ‘Bhagwan Bharose’ (the mercy of God).

Bihar CM was addressing a function after inaugurating a seven-storeyed Sardar Patel Bhawan, the state’s first quake-resistant building where all wings of the home (police) department and the disaster management department would soon be shifted. Spread across 6.7 acres in five separate blocks, the sprawling building would have all modern facilities for policing and quick response in case of a disaster, besides a rooftop helipad.

The state-of-the-art building, which was constructed using lead rubber bearing (LRB) technique, can resist quakes up to 8 magnitude on the Richter scale. Altogether 308 LRB, imported from the US, have been used in the building.

“We (state government) think of your security and provide you with all necessary resources and technological support. I expect that you people, too, think of providing security and necessary protection to the common public. Please do ‘something.’ Please think about the public,” Nitish told the police officers. Almost all senior police officers including those of DG, ADG and IG rank were present in the audience while the DGP Dwivedi was sitting on the dais alongside the principal secretary (Home) Amir Subhani and chief secretary Deepak Kumar.

CM was so unhappy with the lackadaisical attitude of state police that he once asked senior police officers especially DGP not to leave everything “Bhagwan Bharose” (at the mercy of God). Nitish also asked the police officers whether they would leave everything at the mercy of criminals.

Drawing the attention of police officers towards the frequent seizure of smuggled liquors at different places in the state, Nitish while looking toward the DGP, asked, “Are your police working properly for enforcing prohibition?”

“We can make you modern building, provide you necessary resources, create a sufficient number of posts of officers and constables, but you have to recruit constables,” CM said and asked the police officers to expedite recruitment of people against the vacant posts.

CM pulled up the DGP also for not purchasing a helicopter. “This new building has a rooftop helipad. But the police headquarters do not have a helicopter. I want to give a helicopter to the state police, but the DGP is not purchasing. Previous DGPs also didn’t purchase the helicopter,” Nitish said. He, however, clarified that the rooftop helipad was not meant for the regular use of police department. “This helipad will be used for disaster management and only in the case of emergency or extraordinary situation,” he said.

Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi, building construction minister Maheshwar Hazari, road construction minister Nand Kishor Yadav, chief secretary Deepak Kumar, principal secretary (home) Amir Subhani and DGP Dwivedi also addressed the function.
