Cops take WhatsApp message seriously, skip Rajnath Singh's Guard of Honour



IN AN EMBARRASSING episode, police constabulary in Rajasthan went on leave to protest a possible move to reduce their pay scales, leaving Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in a piquant situation when he arrived in Jodhpur this week and the cops assigned for the Guard of Honour duty went AWOL. 

A separate police contingent was put together in a hurry to offer salute to the minister.


Authorities now plan to take action against the police constables. Any such action by constables in Kashmir could have invited criticism of being anti-national, but since this was Rajasthan, the government stuck to phrases like "serious" and "unfortunate."

Rajasthan cops are angry at the possibility of reduction in their pay scale from Rs 24,000 to Rs 19,000, but so far, there has been no official word on the matter and the issue has been a debating point on social media.
 
Police authorities have confirmed that the uniformed men tasked with guard of honour duty simply did not turn up and alternative team had to be despatched. 

Now, the state police chief has asked senior officers to clarify that there was no such move regarding pay scales.

Sections of the media in Rajasthan have also reported cases of policemen shaving off their heads to protest move to reduce their pay.
