India Capt Questions Badal Move To Train Cops In Israel

Capt questions Badal move to train cops in Israel

Chandigarh, September 7
Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Capt Amarinder Singh today questioned the logic behind sending police personnel for commando training to Israel who will afterwards be deployed for Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal's security. He remarked, "Badal seems to have no faith and trust in his own police force by seeing a terrorist behind every bush."

Reacting to the reports that the Akali-BJP government in Punjab had decided to send cops to Israel for commando training, Capt Amarinder said Badal already had elite NSG security cover and now he wanted Israeli trained personnel for his security. He said if Badal really wanted to impart his security staff with advanced training, he could send them to NSG training centre at Manesar where even the SPG commandos, looking after the security of the Prime Minister, were trained or to Belgaum where Army's commandos are trained.
Capt Amarinder pointed out that when he took over as the Chief Minister, he returned all the NSG commandos who had been inducted into the Chief Minister's security by Badal and had instead deployed only the Punjab Police personnel for the job. "You should have faith in your own police and people," he told Badal. "Don't demoralise your own police by suspecting them."
Capt Amarinder also had a word of advice for Sukhbir Badal: "Everybody knows that Badal's political decisions over the past 40 years have been based on fear, but you are young and you should set a brave precedent by trusting your own police of which department you are the minister. Do not follow your father's footsteps, trust your police and people."
