New Year eve & publication of part NRC draft

By our Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Dec 30: How come top cops, who hardly get any breathing space, make their families get the taste of festivities? It looks like impossible for such officers to make their kin get their fair share of festivities as the very essence of their services is ‘sacrificing all merry-making for public security’. They, however, can make do with scopes, whatever negligent they might be, that are within their limited reach.

They remain busy round the clock when there are festivities and merry-making all around. They view such festivities with a different spectacle that lets them see what others are not interested at all. Since they too have their family members who are not likely to sacrifice all merry-making in life, they, as often as not, face problems to keep such situations balanced.

Talking to this reporter, State DGP Mukesh Sahay said: “Since our motto is duty first, December 31, 2017 is essentially a challenging day for us. Apart from being the last day of the outgoing year, a part draft of NRC is set to be published after mid-night on that day. All our personnel will be busy in NRC seva kendras where they are supposed to observe the New Year Day. All personnel are working overtime so as to ensure safety of common people. All NRC seva kendras will be under a security team each. We’ve our special nodal officer, ADGP (land and order) Mukesh Agarwal, to look after NRC related security.”

“We never celebrate festivities for we’ve to give others security during festivities. We feel successful only when other stakeholders in society can celebrate festivities peacefully. When festivities for others are over, we do make some arrangements for ourselves and our kin within our respective campuses to get our share of festivities, whatever small they may be,” Sahay said. On NRC update, the DGP said: “This is a part draft that shouldn’t let anyone to be panicked. In accordance with the order issued by the Supreme Court of India whatever has been completed is being published. Remaining parts of the NRC will also be published later. This is a long-drawn-out process that will linger. Without any hesitation, I appeal to all to celebrate the New Year. I also take this opportunity to wish all a happy and prosperous New Year.”

Talking to this reporter, ADGP (admin) LR Bishnoi said: “We’ve been appointed to serve people. We’ve three types of jobs in our department – desk job, field job and job mixing both. One of the biggest achievements in policing in the State glaringly visible in 2017 is the fall in insurgency. It won’t be an exaggeration if one says that insurgency has come to an end in the State. We experienced what insurgency is when I was posted in Kokrajhar. People have also realized how worthy peace is. It’s a good sign.” On family magement, the ADGP said: “The time scale is equal for all within which we’ve to mage everything. Keeping in touch with family members is also an important task for us, even though we can’t be good magers on this front. However, we do take time out from duty sometimes to be with family members who’re very supportive. December 31 being a holiday we can take family members for outing nearby. On the other, January 1 being a working day, we can’t wear a different hat. I take this opportunity to wish the people of the State a happy New Year.”

Dispur police station OC Himangshu Das said: “We always give more time to the public, and then we try to give time to our families. Since we’ve opted to join the State police force on our own our prime duty is to satisfy public. December 31 being the last day of this year and part draft of NRC is also set to be published after midnight that day, we need to render more duty. In such a situation we can’t take any time out from our duty schedule for family members. We appeal to the people of the State to celebrate New Year peacefully and shun mixing drinking and driving.”
