Dimapur, March 30: DGP Nagaland, John Longkumer today clarified that the Police Department has not enforced one day salary cut from police officers and jawans towards the CM Relief Fund.
“There is an erroneous report going around that Police Department has enforced a one day salary cut from police officers and jawans towards the CM Relief Fund. This is untrue,” he said today, adding the contribution is totally voluntary.
He disclosed that today the IPS and NPS Association and the branches in the Police Headquarters voluntarily contributed Rs 25 lakhs to the fund. “Contributions are voluntary and accepted whether from a jawan or an officer and no amount is fixed,” he stated adding “it is an amount decided by the contributor. Whether it is Rs 10 or Rs 10,000 it is up to the individual.”
The DGP said, “We have decided that giving is a most Christian virtue and nobody can question or judge that fundamental right of the individual,” and hoped that this would clarify any doubts.
If anybody has further questions, they can address it to their Facebook, Twiter accounts, he added. (Page News Service)
