  • Ably go beyond call of duty, rope in donors, philanthropists to go to the help of worst hit sections
  • Win all-round trust of people, despite a packed and gruelling schedule of lockdown & regular duties

Hyderabad: The slogan 'For You, With You Always' of the Telangana Police has evidently demonstrated the generous support that they have been provided during this long pandemic scare.

The lockdown has not only been a testing hour for the locals but has been even more for the needy and poor migrants. With no income and food, they have been starving for days and are totally dependent on people's donations and help.

From providing meals and dry ration to sending the migrants back to their native places, to raising awareness about COVID-19, the Telangana police has conducted itself as a real thoroughbred, despite having a packed up schedule of bandobast and regular duties.

Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao called the migrant labours 'the children of the state' as they were the partners in the economic development of the state. Taking cue from him, since the very first day of the lockdown, each police station in all the three commissionerates identified labour colonies and surveyed their needs. Later, they roped in philanthropists and donors to donate essentials to them. Donations and funds for essentials were taken care of by the donors and organizations.

Cyberabad Commissionerate

With an active participation of several volunteers including Society for Cyberabad Security Council, Robin Hood Army, People for Animals and many others along with the police officials, around 8,88,500 meal packets and dry ration, more than 1000 blood donation camps, feeding around 3000 dogs stray dogs per day were some of the activities done by the commissionerate.

Speaking to The Hans India, V C Sajjanar, Commissioner of Police, Cyberabad said, "The mammoth task of serving the needy wouldn't be possible without the help of the volunteers and our police officers. We are very proud and fortunate to serve the people during this pandemic. As the pandemic has also distanced people from each other, it has also brought all of us together in unity to help the needy which is more important."


Rachakonda Commissionerate

The Rachakonda Commissionerate has sent more than 44,000 migrants to their natives through the Shramik special trains. They provided around 50 lakh cooked meal packets and dry rations to the migrants and needy in Hyderabad and outskirts of Hyderabad. Activities like addressing the lockdown blues, food distribution, providing ration kit to around 700 pregnant women, providing general facilities to the locals were some of the activities done by the commissionerate.

Speaking to The Hans India, Mahesh Bhagwat, Commissioner of Police, Rachakonda said, "During the pandemic, the trust of people has greatly increased our responsibilities. The way they have trusted and relied on us showed the true strength of unity and equality. I am very proud of the entire Rachakonda Commissionerate team and all the volunteers to make this possible and be a helping hand and support to the needy. Meanwhile, the battle is half won by all of us, but everyone needs to remember that the war is still on. We need to be stronger than before with the support of all the volunteers, locals and the officers."




Hyderabad Commissionerate

The Hyderabad city police was basically trying to balance the demand and supply ratio to ensure that not even one migrant worker should go to sleep with an empty stomach.

Around 1,15,435 migrant labours were enrolled under the commissionerate, out of which 54,908 were sent through the special trains to their natives. Activities like providing meals and dry ration, sanitizers, soaps and taking doctors and Gynaecologists to those who were in need to visit them, regular inspections of the markets are some of the activities done by the commissionerate to help the migrants.

Speaking to The Hans India, Anjani Kumar, the Commissioner of Police, Hyderabad, said, "It was a very noble and a unique experience for all the police officers during the pandemic. They had never done such duty in the past. There are times which comes rarely in the career of a police officer when one gets an opportunity to work during such historical times. This made us feel proud of the colour of our uniform."
