Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has instructed the Nepal Police to get ready for management of security arrangements for the nearing elections to the House of Representatives and State Assemblies.  The twin elections have been slated for November 26 and December 7 in two rounds.  

In his address to a special programme organised at the Nepal Police headquarters today, marking the 62nd police day today, the prime minister applauded the Nepal Police for its role in making the recent local level elections successful. He hoped the same sort of support and cooperation from it in the upcoming polls also.

He took the time to direct the police administration to be more active to keep the society safe through the closeness between the police and civic.   

Also speaking on the occasion, Home Minister Janardan Sharma said the government is preparing to announce further relief packages for the families of those attaining martyrdom and left injured in the line of duty.

Inspector General of Police Prakash Aryal expressed his views that the police day that is celebrated in commemoration of it gaining the legal recognition would inspire the entire police force to become more responsible towards the nation and people.
