Kathmandu, April 11, 2017: Newly appointed Inspector General of Police (IGP) Prakash Aryal said any activities capable of jeopardising peace and good governance taking the advantage of transition could not be tolerated.
Delivering his speeches at a programme to welcome and congratulate him on his appointment as IGP at the Nepal Police headquarters today, he pledged that police department would make every possible effort to stay true to their commitments to fulfill their responsibilities to implement the new constitution and hold local level elections in a free and fair manner.
Saying his priority is to stick to his professionalism and its effectiveness, he said, “I want to try to be your dear IGP. I will play a guardian with efficiency enough to hear complaints of police personnel of any ranking.” He also made commitments to bringing anyone found guilty of illegal activity to justice and execute his responsibilities not being affected by any influence and pressure from any persons in power.
He also made a symbolic remark, urging those who were his previous competitor in the appointment process to accept the result as natural and work united ahead.
At the event that were attended by various police officials and personnel, Dr Dinesh Chandra Pokharel, who earlier looked after the affairs of IGP as Deputy IGP, welcomed and congratulated Aryal on his appointment to the post of IGP. He also urged Aryal to focus on work on reforming in police department and chain of command that were being eroded due to various reasons.
