"The constabulary is the backbone of Police force and welfare steps should be taken to raise the morale of constables," Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said in
a meeting with the Police department here.
It is a matter of concern that a constable is offered first promotion after 16 years of his services and that too without any financial incentive, he said and directed DGP P S Gill to submit an action plan within seven days to check stagnation at constable and ASI level.
