In a significant move towards ‘Vyavastha Parivartan’, the State Government, led by Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu, has suspended the ‘guard of honor’ generally given by the police to different dignitaries during their field visits in the State until 15th September 2023, with the exception of Independence Day on 15th August. This decision comes in the wake of ongoing large-scale relief and rescue operations undertaken in response to the recent disaster in the State.
The Chief Minister has issued the order in this regard and emphasized the pressing need for an increased police force presence in the ongoing rescue efforts. The police personnel should refrain from engaging in tasks such as guard of honor and instead focus their efforts solely to aid the affected during this critical period. He said that this decision aims to prioritize and streamline the State’s resources to effectively address the aftermath of the disaster. With rescue operations underway, it is crucial to ensure that the police force remains fully committed to providing immediate assistance to the affected individuals.
The move underscores the state’s dedication to addressing the immediate needs of the disaster-stricken region and reinforces the government’s commitment to efficient governance during this challenging time, he said.
The Chief Minister said that as the relief and rescue operations continue, the state government remains steadfast in its resolve to provide essential support to those affected by the recent disaster.
