Hyderabad: A police training program for those who wish to join the police force was organized at Siasat Daily’s Office, Abid Ali Khan century hall, Siasat compound on Sunday.
Addressing the aspiring candidates, the Government of Telangana’s advisor A K Khan said that a career in the police department, unlike a private job with no guarantee, is permanent employment with attractive salaries and perks.
“Job in the police department is like a mission to help others. As for salary, it starts from Rs 40,000 per month which keeps on increasing with opportunities for career advancement. Constables can get promotions to become Jawan, SI, and DSP/ACP, Khan said.
Khan said that the ratio of Muslims in government jobs is decreasing day by day. “Earlier the number of Muslims as inspectors and constables was large which has decreased now.”
Khan added, “The mode of selection today is transparent with rules and regulations and no recommendation can fetch a job in the police department. Even a high police official cannot appoint a constable. Everyone has to go through the exam process. Knowledge is key to success in today’s time. Hence, the government is giving employment to those who have knowledge.”
Commenting on Muslim’s socio-economic condition, Khan opined, “We cannot say that our community is backward. The community does not lack intellectuals and scholars. If it is lacking something, it is in the field of economy and education. There is a need to nurture Muslim youths’ talents and encourage them to come forward.”
“Government jobs are not merely a source to earn money rather it’s a mission to help society,” the advisor to the government of Telangana said. He cited the example of his son who was offered a Rs.1.96 crore package in Google but he rejected that offer in favor of civil service. “Today my son is a district collector and the respect he commands and the perks and facilities he is getting today are many times better than the salary offered by Google.”
Speaking about prejudice and bias, Khan said that there is no alternative to merit, there is a need to get success from smart thinking and hard work. “It’s the era of knowledge and we have to fulfill its requirements. Competitive exams are always between elite candidates of about 5 – 10 percent. There is a need for the Muslim candidates to participate in competitive exams in large numbers,” Khan said.
The aspiring candidates have to pass a written and physical test. May 26 is the last date for enrollment.
A large number of candidates from various districts of Telangana attended the program presided by Siasat Daily’s Managing Editor Zaheeruddin Ali Khan. The program was moderated by Hamid, a career counselor, who informed the candidates about the test papers’ details.
Dr. Nazim Ali, Ahmed Bashiruddin Farooqi, Syed Khalid Mohiuddin Asad and Tahir Pasha Qadri Shakir coordinated the program.
