DGP given emotional farewell

Dehradun, January 31
Officers of the Uttarakhand Police bid an emotional farewell to DGP Aloke B. Lal at a dinner organised at the Police Officers’ Mess in Dehradun today. Lal retired after nearly 37 years of distinguished service.
DGP J S Pande praised Lal for his extraordinary professional capabilities as well as his talent in painting, photography and music. DIG Deepam Seth made an audio-visual presentation to showcase Lal’s meritorious services. It was a special treat to view some of Lal’s fine photographs and paintings too in the same presentation.
The officers, who spoke on the occasion, repeatedly referred to Lal’s affable nature and his leadership style and ability to get the best out of his colleagues without hard words and the aggressive style associated with the police.
The speakers said Lal’s leadership style was influenced by his love for sports. He has the ability to accept defeat and not pass the blame on to a junior officer. For this reason he was always loved and respected by his fellow officers and men.
There was a moving reference to the help he extended to the families of police martyrs who needed help for medical treatment.
Lal spoke about his long association with the police force. He recalled how on several occasions with little or no resources he managed to achieve astounding successes. He also recalled how his fellow cricket teammates in different places of posting were instrumental in providing to him credible intelligence inputs, leading to many successful operations.
The outgoing DGP stressed the need for reforms in the police. He reminded his former colleagues that the people expected police officers to serve them with a sense of dignity and respect. He exhorted them to adopt innovative methods to overcome lack of resources. The farewell function was attended by several serving and former officers.
