The Arunachal Pradesh government led Chief Minister Pema Khandu promoted over 1535 Arunachal Pradesh Police constables to the post of Head Constable Rank. It was regarded as the biggest mass promotion in the history of Arunachal Pradesh.
“Police personnel recruited in the rank had to retire in the same rank even after putting in more than 20 to 30 years of continuous service. This situation had adversely affected the work force in the department demoralizing in the career progression of the police force,” said CM Pema Khandu, while speaking on the occasion.
Khandu further said that, “Sensing the necessity and to boost the morale of the Police force, the State Government had passed a resolution in the Assembly to promote constables who have completed 20 years of service and more to Head Constable on Honorary rank.”
The occasion was also attended by Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein, Home Minister Kumar Waii, State BJP President Tapir Gao, Chief Secretary Satya Gopal, DGP SBK Singh and other dignitaries.
