Guest ready? Post LG visit, police HQ reduced to dumping ground

On Monday, Lieutenant Governer of Delhi Najeeb Jung visited the police headquarters for an official meet. A few days ago, Jung had asked Neeraj Kumar, Delhi police chief to organise such a visit.
All senior police officials including joint commissioners, special commissioners, additional commissioners and deputy commissioners met the Lt. Governor over lunch.

Najeeb Jung remained at the headquarters for more than three hours and interacted with every official present at the meeting. He personally met each additional commissioner and deputy commissioner of police of all  11 districts, as well as joint commissioners of police and took an update of the law and order situation in their respective areas.

He also made a stop over at the police control room, that handles distress calls from across the capital. Jung spent more than half-an-hour at the operations department to form an idea of how the officials work.

Before the arrival of the Lt. Governer, the headquarters had been cleaned and properly decked-up in anticipation of the visitor. But soon after Jung left, relaxed officials turned a few floors of the headquarters into a dumping-ground of sorts. Anyone stepping out of the lift on the fifth floor, was greeted with the sight of garbage bags lying near the lift.

Chairs were found loaded with used bottles and glasses. The water-cooler on one of the floors was found to be badly broken down.
When officials of that floor were contacted, they complained that the water cooler had remained in that state for the past five days.

Whether Jung, in his tour of the police headquarters came face-to-face with these less than pretty sights, or whether the officials managed to keep all things unworthy under wraps, is uncertain.
