Panaji, Dec 6 (GCCurrentAffairs) The Congress in Goa has opposed direct recruitment of Deputy Superintendents of Police (DySPs) and threatened to file Public Interest Litigation, before Bombay High Court at Goa, direct recruitment of DySPs were held without giving promotions to Police Inspectors.
Speaking to UNI, Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) Spokesperson Urfan Mulla said,”Congress party in Goa has requested the state government to promote police inspectors who have been working for about 27-28 years. We have no problem with any recruitment but before that these police officers should be promoted.”
Alleging that Home Department of the state was serious about problems of people, he said, ”If police officers are not promoted, it will affect their moral. So we want that they be promoted and then other things are done.
When asked who government would fulfill Congress’ demand when it was being claimed that there was no governance, Mr Mulla said,”When they (Bharatiya Janata Party) are claiming that Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is attending meetings and his health condition is good, then why can’t these demands be fulfilled.”
”Whatever they require, everything is happening, then I think issue of promotion of police officers is genuine. Police officers have already given their representation to police officers. On the basis of that they should get promotions, he said.
According to Mr Mulla, in 1991, a batch of 14 Police Sub-Inspectors were recruited and later they were promoted as Police Inspectors in 2002. Now the state government has sanctioned posts of 44 DySPs.
If there was direct recruitment of DySPs then most of the Police Inspectors and Police Sub Inspectors would retire without promotions, he claimed.
