State Home minister Imkong L Imchen Friday called upon the police to enforce the cease-fire ground rules (CFGR) without any hesitation and defend the principles of the ceasefire agreement between the Government of India and NSCNs at any cost. “Ceasefire agreement is a potentially important document in the political history of the state, so this has to be defended at any cost”, Imchen said in his address at the 40th general session of the Nagaland Police Service Association (NPSA) held at Police Conference Hall Chumukedima. Maintaining that the Government of India should not be allowed to question the integrity of the factions for not honestly following the cease-fire agreement, he asked the police to protect the cease-fire agreement. The minister also said it was the responsibility of the police force to provide peace and security to the people. Taking strict note of reports of “Havildars and Constables” mixing with underground cadres, Imchen asked SPs and Commandants to ensure that their jawans do not execute the duties of the factions. “No, no, no, let us stop this” the minister said. Imchen also assured to look into welfare of the police personnel. State DGP, I. Changkija in his address said orders sent from PHQ were not given due attention or acted upon by the unit commanders, and warned that such actions would no longer be taken lightly. The DGP on the other hand assured to look into any proposal relating to posting of various senior officers. NPSA president Vika Sumi, Commandant 12 IR Chumukedima, who chaired the programme, in his presidential address urged the police to act as a friend without compromising the rule of law. He called upon fellow officers to convince the society that their role was not that of the aggressor but a constructive benevolent agency of the state for the law abiding citizens. NPSA also elected a new team of office bearers for the tenure 2008-10 to be headed by Neba Newmai as the president.
