On April 5, 2018, Lucknow, the capital city of Uttar Pradesh, hosted the “Police Week” program along with a parade. UP’s CM Yogi Adityanath along with Governor Ram Naik also attended the ceremony.
The program, however, made it to the news for an entirely different reason. During the ceremony, the National Anthem started playing. Quite expectedly the CM, Governor Ram Naik, and DGP along with others stood up to show their respect. Amidst this, the nearby food court presented a rather shameful picture.
It was seen that officers are busy browsing through different delicious food items while the National Anthem was being played. The shocking fact is that most of them were senior IPS officers.
The ceremony included discussions and talks by several renowned personalities from the Police world. One of the main points of discussion was about the cybercrime and ways to deal with the same.
President’s Police Medal was awarded to some of the officers for their brilliant service. Besides, parades were arranged to honor the governor present at the ceremony.
Here is a video of Hon’ble Governor’s Parade from UP Police’s official Twitter account:
