Chandigarh, March 25: According to a Punjab police spokesman it is learnt that an issue is being made out of Central forces being deployed for the protection of senior functionaries of the Punjab government. Since the matter involves the prestige and morale of the police and security forces, it is important to set the record straight on the matter.
Security forces often work together in close coordination in a cohesive manner in fulfillment of a common objective, whether it’s protection of highly threatened individuals or any other facet of Internal security duties such as operations against militants and insurgents. Punjab has a particularly long tradition of various Central and State security forces working together, and they have numerous success stories to their credit during the disturbed decade of the eighties and early nineties. When different forces work together, they are able to draw on their varied skills and experience and share best practice to achieve a common goal. It may also be pertinent to mention here that all the central forces have a large representation of people from the State of Punjab.
