Srinagar, September 19: A top Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) official emphasised on Tuesday the force’s commitment to interacting with the people outside of its main function in counterterrorism operations.

Commandant 79BN CRPF Srinagar, Kishore Kumar, stressed their many obligations, including strengthening connections with the local community, in his remarks to reporters on the sidelines of the medical camp.


“People should speak out in a public way so that others would see individuals in uniform as being just like regular people. Additionally, the CRPF wants to interact with people, he said.

The 79th BN of the CRPF conducted the medical camp with the intention of showing the general people that the CRPF is as devoted to delivering basic services and interacting with the community as it is to conducting anti-militancy operations.

The main objective of the medical camp was to provide care and medicine to individuals in need. Through the CRPF’s Madadgar programme, the CRPF ensures that certain patients get continued treatment after its medical camps, he added.

The officer stressed that the CRPF is a part of the public and that “we are here to help people” as he expressed amazement at the enormous public reaction.

The medical camp is a part of the CRPF’s yearly civic action programme, which is run by the Srinagar sector.

According to a physician attending to the patient, each medical camp, like the one the 79th BN organised, routinely handles 300 patients.

Every year, the CRPF holds 40 to 50 medical camps in different locations that help around 7,000 families, according to him.

He emphasised their focus by saying that they mainly target those with metabolic diseases, diabetes, and hypertension. Approximately 7,000 to 8,000 youngsters have benefited from deworming initiatives carried out by the CRPF, he said.

The doctor said that their goal is to provide necessary medical services to the general population at their doorsteps. Beyond medical help, people turn to the CRPF for a variety of forms of assistance; we provide them with free care and medicines, he added.
