The service of the police is about the safety of the citizens. Selection of people from third gender community in this service will eliminate the age-old misconception of people towards third gender. People will treat them respectfully and in future, many more doors of opportunities in public sector would open for the people of third gender. Chairman Dr. Nayak requested them to live up to their responsibilities as police personnel in the interest of common citizens and inspire them to become an example for the society.
Dr. Nayak said that the Indian Constitution has bestowed various rights upon women and now that women are becoming aware of their rights, they are exercising it with confidence. Women’s Commission is diligently working towards creating more and more awareness about women’s rights. Aware and Informed women can give a new direction to the society. Similarly, the third gender community has been neglected and discriminated against for years. The third gender community has been empowered by the Constitution, and now with growing awareness about their constitutional rights, the third gender community will claim various opportunities and will establish its identity in the society.
