Patna: The 36th annual All India Police Equestrian Championship and Mounted Police Duty Meet came to an end at the Bihar Veterinary College playground on Sunday as Chief Minister Nitish Kumar handed out prizes to the winners in the presence of a number of senior government officials.

Congratulating the winners of the tournament, Kumar showered accolades to the Bihar police for making the event very successful.

"The law enforcement, by nature, is a serious and busy department. To find time for extracurricular activities like sports or horse-riding should not only be encouraged, it is quite praiseworthy," he said.

The Chief Minister then went on to tout the improvement in the Bihar police since he took charge of the state over 12 years ago.

"My administration has brought sea of changes in the working and condition of the Bihar police. Today our police stations are equipped with modern tools and equipment to deal with any situation. There is one police station in Patna that even has an elevator. Nobody had ever imagined such a police station could exist in Bihar. Hiring in the police department is going on at a much faster pace and there is no dearth of modern police vehicles and arms to deal with any situation," he said.

Kumar then urged senior police officials to bring improvement in the police lines in Patna.

"I have personally visited police lines twice and it is not livable yet. All efforts should be made to improve its condition. The government has already allocated money for it," Kumar said.

Advocate General Lalit Kishore, Chief Secretary (Home Department) Amir Subhani, Director General of Police (DGP) P K Thakur, DG (Home Guard) P N Rai and many others were present on the occasion.
