Bhubaneswar: When model police stations have been launched recently by Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik across the State in a bid to make policing more people-friendly and act smartly in true letter and spirit with a human face, and as the motto of Bhubaneswar-Cuttack Commissionerate Police is “We Care, We Dare”, the traffic police personnel deployed on roads are not only for traffic management, but also ought to play the pivotal role of a Good Samaritan, a friend in need a friend indeed.

Accordingly, these two traffic personnel were noticed for their “sensible and sympathetic gesture exhibited for differently-abled and needy persons to cross the busy road that makes them role models for others.”

Thus goes the Letter of Appreciation presented today to woman Traffic Constable Rajalaxmi Baliarsingh of Bhubaneswar UPD and Cuttack UPD Traffic Havildar Gyanendu Kumar Mallick by Twin City Police Commissioner Satyajit Mohanty for their exemplary gesture and noble deed.

Also Rs 1000 prize money, a token of incentive and honorarium, was also gifted to each of them.

Rajalaxmi Baliarsingh, now deployed at Rabindra Mandap area route, was noticed by the sensible Police Commissioner for exhibiting voluntarily such a humanitarian gesture while she was deployed earlier at AG Chhak.

In her media reactions, Rajalaxmi Baliarsingh recounted, “I was on duty at AG Chhak. I noticed a differently-abled (visually impaired person) unable to cross the extremely busy street. No vehicle was applying brake for paving his path. I moved towards him and after enquiring about his wish helped him cross over the busy street.”

On being asked about her reactions after being felicitated by the Police Commissioner for her noble deed, she replied, “I’m extremely elated at receiving the Letter of Appreciation. I want that all should help others. It is not only the prime duty of police personnel, but of all. Whenever we notice such a condition, we should all volunteer to help others.”

Cuttack Traffic Havildar Gyanendu Kumar Mallick in his reactions said, “First of all I would like to express my deep sense of gratitude to our Commissioner Saheb for felicitating us. This will motivate and inspire us to move ahead as someone is noticing our duty.”

“That day a handicapped person was coming. He asked if at all he could be able to witness Bali Jatra as there were human barricades at the Bali Jatra ground. When I cross-questioned him, pat came the reply that he is unable to enter. I at once helped him cross the obstacles. This little help I had done.”

“I would like to appeal all and my colleagues that our traffic police should definitely help the senior citizens or blind man or handicapped person or anyone in need of help.”
