Pawar bats for police force

In a series of tweets, the Pawar said, "There is a special strain on the police administration when it comes to the arrival and departure of important persons at public meetings or tours. Other times, police personnel have to stand firm for hours. The police personnel should be prompt and ready during the meeting, but I feel that the women police personnel, especially when the meeting is running smoothly, suffer unbearably. Also, I don't think it is appropriate for senior police officers to be abusive."

Pawar suggested that the police personnel should be allowed to sit once the event starts so that there is comparatively less strain. "Therefore, when the meeting starts in peace, guidelines should be issued to women police personnel, senior police officers and other police personnel for providing chairs or seats for them to sit on as needed. I have sent a letter to the Hon'ble Home Minister of the State of Maharashtra requesting that the police officers and officers should be allowed to do so through the Home Department. I expect the Home Minister to look into this matter personally," he added.
