Tripura police faces staff shortage, resentment brewing

Agartala, March 30 (TIWN):The government has failed to initiate the construction of staff quarters to ease the accommodation problem for the state police. According to data received by TIWN from home department 11,277 staff quarters are required whereas there are only 2,878. Police constables are the most deprived ones, 9,702 staff quarters are required but there are only 2,357 quarters.

The shortages of  staff quarters are giving rise to serious resentment among   the police staff. The government is ignorant on the burning issue. Home department sources said central government is sanctioning crores of rupees for modernization and welfare of police personnel.

Besides, the state government   has failed miserably to ensure better living conditions for the state’s police force. It is alleged that, the home department is "completely neglecting" the maintenance of multi-story houses for the force.

The condition of these houses is pathetic. There is inadequate water supply and sewerage system is in shambles,” said a police constable of A.D. Nagar police quarter complex unwilling to be named, he urged to ensure that maintenance of the colonies must be ensured by the concerned civic authority - the Public Works Department.

A systematic policy should be adopted and a department should be created under the state police for maintenance work.

In view of shortage of land, multi storied flats should be constructed so that police personnel get better housing accommodation and the problem of shortage of staff quarters is also solved.
