Associations Bat for Fulfilment of Demands made by Police

Barracks should be constructed in taluks for police. The quality of products should be maintained on the ration given to police.


In addition, they also demanded the scrapping of the orderly system in the police department, payment of overtime to officials working beyond 8 hours, extension of maternity leave to 9 months, risk allowance, and recommendation of police constables and head constables for Chief Minister’s and President’s medals.

A protest march will be organized on June 4 from Ajjarkadu to the Deputy Commissioner’s Office, Rajathadri. Later, a memorandum will be submitted to the deputy commissioner, he added.
