New Delhi: Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday asked Delhi Home Guards to play a greater role in the overall security scenario and sought enhanced training for them to meet growing challenges.

Complimenting the force for its role during the CWG, she said city government was considering enhancing the minimum wages of the personnel.

Addressing the 64th Raising Day celebration of Home Guards and Civil Defence, she said the force played an important role during Commonwealth Games along with police and other security agencies to ensure discipline and fool proof security.

In order to prepare for the ever increasing challenges of the complex security scenario, several training programmes such as community policing, traffic management and disaster management related training programmes have been conducted by the Central Training Institute of the force, she added.

Dikshit said Home Guards on many occasions work under a lot of strain and in adverse circumstances and it was necessary that they were suitably trained and well equipped to deal with all demanding situations.

She also distributed President's Medal to brave Home Guards.

Chief Secretary Rakesh Mehta, Principal Secretary (Home) G S Patnaik and Director General of Home Guards & Civil Defence A S Khan were also present on the occasion.
