Accolades And Cash Prize To Punjab Cops For Manning Traffic In Knee-Deep Water

While Chandigarh is facing the wrath of rains, it couldn’t stop two Head Constables Gurdhian Singh and Gurdev Singh from doing their duty. Standing in knee-deep waters on Saturday afternoon, they regulated traffic so that it helps the commuters from getting delayed.

Even though their efforts didn’t go much noticed, but social media ensured that it doesn’t go to waste. Due to this, not only the entire city but Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh also appreciated their dedication and efforts.

According to the Tribune report, it was actor-turned-politician Gul Panag who first tweeted photos of Gurdhian Singh regulating traffic in knee-deep waters on the Patiala road tagging the chief minister’s Twitter handle as well.

She sought his intervention and it came instantly that too on the social media itself.

The CM further directed the ADGP to honor both the policemen deployed in Zirakpur area. On Thursday, both of them were given Rs 1,000 each and certificates as a token of appreciation.

On Wednesday, heavy rain had immersed the tricity roads. To clear the traffic jams, cops were wading through the flooded roads including the Panchkula chowk, McDonald’s chowk, Patiala road, Singhpura chowk and Airport Chowk.

In the tweet, Gul Panag mentioned that these cops should be rewarded and later the two policemen extended their gratitude to her saying that it was part of their duty and the appreciation they received was a pleasant surprise. Also, they thanked the chief minister.

While disclosing the initiative, a spokesperson of the Punjab Police said that traffic police employees would be selected on the basis of feedback received from the citizens and will be honored as the ‘police personnel of the week/month’, as mentioned by Tribune.

To bring such stories under the spotlight- police personnel, citizens can tweet, send emails, post comments on Punjab Police social media platforms or can even send messages on Whatsapp along with photographs to the officers concerned.

Further, he added that, based on the feedback, ADGP/Traffic will reward the selected traffic personnel with commendation certificates/cash rewards. The certificate will be titled “You make the difference“.
