With the city temperature crossing 40 degrees Celsius, traffic police are sweating it out, standing for hours on the road exposed to the scorching heat, noise and air pollution. With the mercury shooting up mercilessly, it becomes very difficult for traffic sergeants deployed on the streets of Gurgaon to man the thoroughfares. To beat the scorching heat, Sh. Sharad Goel, President, Nature International distributed water flasks to the cops of Gurgaon traffic police here on Wednesday. The distribution took place in Traffic Tower in the presence of Sh. Navdeep Singh Virk, Commissioner of Poilce, Gurgaon, Smt. Bharti Arora, Joint Commissioner of Police, Gurgaon and Vinod Kaushik, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Gurgaon and almost all senior officers were present on the occasion. Around 360 flasks were distributed to the cops ranked inspectors and below. The flasks can store 2 liters of water and keeps the water cool for a longer period of time.
“I have personally felt that the traffic police who are on duty are forced to drink water from here and there which is usually not purified and in turn affects their health. Keeping this in mind we thought of initiating this distribution “said, Sh. Sharad Goel, President Nature International.
Sh. Navdeep Singh Virk, Commissioner of Police, Gurgaon, said “This is a very noble initiative and we appreciate and thank the Nature International and Sh. Sharad Goel for this thought”.
The same distribution was done last year as well and Nature International has also requested the Gurgaon Traffic Police to let them conduct an Asthma Check Up camp for the Traffic Police of Gurgaon.
