ITANAGAR, Home minister Bamang Felix has said the home department will reconsider enhancing the number of days of casual leave for police personnel based on the provision of law. Talking to the media here on Sunday he said the matter is being vetted by the law and the finance department. Earlier the home department had reduced the number of days of casual leave prompting anger among the police personnel of the state.
The home minister also announced that he will seek more funds from the state government for the sporting activities of police personnel. “Due to covid, the annual sports meet could not be held for the last two years. This year on a small scale level the department conducted football, volleyball, firing competitions, etc. Hopefully, next year we will celebrate sporting meets on a much bigger level,” he said. The minister informed that during the SPs and commandants conference, a discussion will be held on how to improve the sporting activities conducted by the police department.
