Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh Tuesday said that there should not be political interference of any form in the activities of uniform/security forces.

Speaking at the passing out parade of the 47th batch of civil police constables (male) at Manipur Police Training College, Pangei, the chief minister said that security forces are known as disciplined institutions. Therefore, politics should always be kept away from uniform/security forces so that they may perform duties in a fair manner, said Singh. 

Expressing serious concern over the case of supplying sub-standard belts to Manipur police a few years back, Singh assured to all the personnel serving in Manipur police department that his government would never allow anybody to indulge in such irregularity in future.

The chief minister said that he had discussed with the DGP to supply branded uniform, belt and shoe by inviting bids from reputed firms through an open tender. Police/MR/IRB personnel are serving the state and the nation by travelling to different parts of the state including interior hill areas, said the chief minister while adding, “You deserve to receive standard uniform, belt and shoe.”

Singh also asked all the personnel to directly lodge complaint to the grievance cell of the Chief Minister’s Secretariat or to the office of the DGP if they come across any sub-standard supply in future.

He said that soon after the new government came to power, pending results of different batches of Manipur Rifles and Manipur Police had been declared understanding the prolonged woes faced by the candidates and their parents. 

Now, recruitment for two fresh battalions of IRB is going on, he said adding that the state government is putting in best possible effort to recruit these two batches in a transparent manner without any favouritism and corruption. “It is known to everybody that erring personnel found involved in any irregularity in the Physical Efficiency Test (PET) of the said recruitment had been immediately put under suspension,” he said.

The chief minister said that all the police personnel who were passing out today would be posted at different districts and units for maintaining law and order and protecting life and property of the public. All the personnel should discharge their duty with sympathy, understanding, courtesy, firmness and above all with justice, the chief minister said.

Singh assured that no personnel or officer would be victimised in the matters of transfer and posting and promotion. He also urged all the personnel not to seek ministers, MLAs or influential persons’ help to get posted in comfortable areas. “No personnel would be there to serve the interior border areas if every personnel choose to stay at safe places,” he said. 

Members of the state police department must acknowledge the fact that many army and Central paramilitary personnel hailing from different parts of the country are guarding the borders of the state without even thinking that they are being posted at the remotest corner of the country, the chief minister said. 

Ministers, MLAs, DGP, high ranking civil and police officers and huge number of parents, guardians, family members and friends of passing out constables were also present on the occasion.
