The Karnataka Home Guards Division on Sunday inaugurated two units for Nandini Layout and Basavangudi, Bangalore.


The two new units were administered the oath by the DGP & Commandant General Home Guards and Director Civil Defence Karnataka State, Jija Madhavan Hari Singh. Present at the event was Dr Mahesh Joshi, Senior Director of Doordarshan Centre and Doraiswamy, veteran freedom fighter.

"Life in the Home Guards should be interim and foundation period for everyone of you," Jija Harisingh said. Addressing the recruits and Home Guards personnel, Hari Singh went on to add that the work of the Home Guards during the recently concluded Lok Sabha election was appreciated by the entire nation. "The Central Election Commissioner himself has acknowledged the Karnataka Home Guards division for its discipline and untiring efforts during the election process," she said.

The DGP said the Home Guards stood side by side with the police personnel matching their strength with as many as 17,000 of them being deployed for election duty.

Permanent employment

Giving the young cadets and part time Home Guards heartening support, Hari Singh said the Home Guards will be provided a better support system with permanent employment.

"I have been asked to spare 1,600 Home Guards by the traffic personnel in the city, but due to lack of strength have been unable to oblige. Ask your friends and colleagues to come forward and sign with the Home Guards and it will be ensured that more people will be directly employed by the city agencies," she added.

She went on to add that the Home Ministry has already given the green signal to fill any temporary vacancy in the city by qualified Home Guards and the necessary works to ensure this were already under way. "You have joined the home guards for a good cause. With kindness, discipline and commitment you can take this nation towards a secure and prosperous future," said Hari Singh.
