Avoid reports undermining morale of cops: DGP Vaid
Director general of police SP Vaid Wednesday said the police has been fighting a "proxy war for decades" and any speculative reporting, which can affect the morale of the cops, should be avoided.
"@JmuKmrPolice has been fighting a proxy war for decades which requires a lot of courage & determination of the men & officers of JKP. Speculative articles which undermine their morale should be avoided," he said in a tweet.
Vaid was responding to TV news channel reports that the Union home ministry was not "satisfied" with the state police and was looking for a replacement for Vaid.
"As regards to transfer, it's routine matter & prerogative of the govt," he added.
The home ministry also put the speculations to rest, saying it has commended the work done by the police on more than one occasion.
"MHA has denied reports that it is unhappy with Jammu & Kashmir police. On more than one occasion, MHA has commended the work done by J&K police and the valiant sacrifices made by the men & officers of J&K police. There is no question of any dissatisfaction," a spokesperson of the MHA said in a tweet.
