Addressing the gathering, the Chief Minister said, “one TSR battalion will be deployed under Delhi Police — the state government had placed proposals for two battalions and the Union Home Ministry accepted approval for one battalion. A platoon of 3rd-Bn TSR has already been shifted to Delhi in the first phase.”
“Unfortunately, protests had been staged over shifting of the TSR personnel in Delhi. But, the agitators didn’t understand that every person doesn’t get opportunity to work in the capital of the country,” Shri Deb said adding that the state government placed another proposal for deployment of more three/ four TSR battalions in central power sector.
“If the proposal is accepted, the TSR jawans will have an opportunity to gain their experiences apart from getting exposure. Besides, if four/five battalions move to Delhi, the state government will be able to create five new battalions generating employment scopes to at least 6000 unemployed youths,” Shri Deb added.
After formation of new government, many things have changed—be it infrastructure, healthcare, administration, transparent recruitment policy, digitalization or e-PDS system.
The state government has taken various new initiatives to generate income to unemployed youths, increase growth rate, strengthen economic status and transform Tripura into a self-sufficient state.
Policing system has also witnessed several positive changes— policemen are now completing investigation into various cases and submitting charge-sheets within the stipulated time. Besides, lack of accountability among policemen is also a past now.
There was a time in Tripura when police had been failing to establish cases due to political interference. But, police have become free of political interference to a large extent nowadays.
Addressing the gathering, the Hon’ble Chief Minister also assured of constructing and renovating police quarters, constructing of boundary walls in police stations, and implementing other projects under the Fifteenth Finance Commission. The works could not be completed due to insufficient funds under Fourteenth Finance Commission, Shri Deb said.
