State deputy chief minister, Y Patton, who also holds the home portfolio, Saturday asserted that Nagaland police was second to none, saying it was evident from the laurels earned from both within and outside the state.

In the run up to the Statehood Day celebrations on December 1, 2018, deputy chief minister reviewed the parade and other regimental displays of the Nagaland police in the presence of DGP Nagaland John Longkumer and other officers at the NAPTC Parade ground on Saturday.

During his speech, deputy chief minister exhorted police personnel on the ethics and values of being in the uniform service and the responsibilities attached with it. He also advised them to abide by the core values of being in a disciplined organisation.

Patton appreciated and congratulated the DGP and the team for taking the initiative and coordinating efforts to present an excellent parade and regimental display. 

Earlier, on his arrival, deputy chief minister received the general salute.

After the opening remarks by commandant NAPTC, the programme took off with a blindfolded weapon handling display involving  disassembling and assembling the 7.62 SLR , 5.56 INSAS Rifle, AKM and LMG . 

This was followed by drill display by the Mahila Drill platoon, and march past by seven platoons representing the Nagaland Police and the Nagaland Village Guards. 

The parade was commanded by Assistant Commandant Lucy Yhome. In a slight breakaway from tradition and for the very first time, the Hell March was included to add flavour to the Parade and was competently carried out by three platoons of the IR battalions on parade.

Parade also witnessed a Massed Band display comprising of Brass and Pipe bands from the Nagaland Police, Home Guards and Nagaland Village Guards. The massed bands played a number of tunes including Coloney Bogey and Scotland the brave for the March Past; and the wooden heart, Scipio, Arunachal, the Drummers call, Kohima will shine tonight and others featured during the band display.

In appreciation, Deputy chief minister also donated a sum of Rs two lakh for those involved in the parade. The programme ended with a closing remark by DGP Nagaland, T.J. Longkumer.
