Vijay Gupta
VG: The condition of some big and main rotaries is in very dilapidated condition, why?
KG: It is true that the condition of some and big rotaries are in very dilapidated condition and the reason behind their worst condition is that these rotaries were made in unplanned manner and none of the department was hold responsible to maintain their beauty. As the result they are in shambles but our government is committed to maintain their beauty and in this regard some rotaries were handed over the private firms and they are maintain their beauty well. Meanwhile, to make some more rotaries more beautiful, we have a big plan and will install the status of Banda Sing Bahadur at the Kunjwani Chownk, while a big gate of Maharaj Gulab Singh shall be also constructed at the entrance of our Jammu city.
This is not only the responsibility of government to maintain the beauty of these rotaries; we are also calling various NGO to adopt these rotaries, so that more other rotaries should be well maintained.
VG: Despite of the festive season, the government failed to organize any event to revive the fading glory of our culture, why?
KG: It is right that the festive season is on its peak in Jammu, and we have organized many events to boost up the tourism. It was the duty of tourism department to organize such events and they done it well. But this is right that they failed to organize any event for the promotion of our traditional culture, which is fading these days. I will ask them to hold such more events so that we can revive our fading culture. Such events are very important not only for us but also for our future generations, who have negligible knowledge about their culture in the digital life.
VG: Gandhi Nagar is a shopping hub, but still the people are struggling badly due to the scarcity of parking in the area, is there any plan to solve this issue?
KG: It is true that the Gandhi Nagar area is the shopping hub and large number of people from various parts of the city used to visit here for shopping, but we have adequate space for them to park their vehicles. But if still the people are facing any problem then as per your suggestion, we can provide them some space in the Dusshera Ground, so that the people should be avoid to face long jams especially in the festive season. Meanwhile, to provide the people of Jammu a big relief we are going to start the work of Smart city as well as the metro, as the survey for both these projects are in the final stage and we are hopeful that the construction work over these two projects should be started soon.
 
* Police is here to serve the people and it is our duty to provide them a better life, in a crime free and peaceful atmosphere. * This was stated by the Director General of Police (DGP) Dr SP Vaid, during an exclusive interaction with the Young Bites. --------- Here are the excerpts. Vijay Gupta VG: As being the head of police family, what is your thrust for providing more facilities to your men? SP: Police family is a very big family which comprises of about 1 lakh and twenty thousand personnel, who works for day and night every day with a motive to provide the people a better and peaceful life. In this regard, we launch many welfare measures time to time. Recently, our big achievement was to provide promotions to many personnel, which has been approved by the government as a big welfare measure. Enhancement of ex-gratia for my men is also big news and we are trying our best to enhance this amount as compared to the ex-gratia amount, which is provided to the security personnel of other belt forces. There was a need for the reforms in health insurance, and I wanted to share here that we have started providing this scheme for our men at Narayana Hospital, in Katra, where every police personnel and his family members should get 15 pc discounts in their bills. Memorandum with the JK Bank is also a new welfare measure, under which every police person can avail a loan facility upto Rs 20 lakh rupees without any paper work and formality. Meanwhile for better entertainment facilities, we have signed a memorandum with the LG Company to provide electronic items to our men at the CSD rates and to provide better housing facilities to our men, who are protecting many important persons, I have asked my officers to provide them better housing facilities instead of tents. VG: Less quantity of ration to police personnel as compared to the security personnel of other belt forces is a regular complaint, why? DGP: This is true that the police of our state are getting less quantity of ration as compared to the security personnel of other belt forces; the issue has been resolved with the intervention of our Chief Minister. Now they are getting enhanced ration supply but still this quantity is less and we are trying our best to provide them adequate supply of ration earliest. VG: Housing colony for the retired police personnel is an old pending demand, is there any plan to provide them a housing colony? DGP: We are very keen to provide a housing colony for our men and this issue is still in progress with the government. There is delay as till date the government has not finalized the land for the construction of a housing colony. Once, the land is finalized we will start the construction for providing a housing colony. This was not all that the son of the soil and DGP Dr SP Vaid has to say about his department and his men, who are serving the people for better and peaceful life.
