KATHMANDU: Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Narayan Kaji Shrestha today stressed the need for making new laws related to Armed Police Force (APF) as per need and in line with the changing context.

The Home Minister made this statement while inspecting the APF headquarters in Halchowk today. He directed the establishment of additional border outposts meeting international standards and making the whole APF organization dynamic and technology-friendly.

Deputy Prime Minister Shrestha also called for paying attention to the proportional distribution of rations, uniforms, and other facilities to APF staff deployed in the mountain region.

Praising APF for its contribution to rescue and relief distribution efforts and responding to disasters, the minister said the Ministry was always positive about making an action plan and managing resources for the expansion of the district rescue center, the availability of rescue equipment regularly and the development of efficacy of APF personnel deployed during disasters.

On the occasion, he applauded the APF for its dedication to protecting the life and property of people, securing the border, and revenue, and providing security to industries by internalizing the main slogan- ‘peace, security, and dedication to service’.

He said the APF has been demonstrating its skills and capacity as well as its highest professionalism even during adverse situations. It has been successful in establishing its identity as an outstanding security body by fulfilling the responsibilities entrusted to it by the State.

The Home Minister also said that the Ministry will take the necessary initiatives for conducting the Organization and Management Survey for the APF’s restructuring.

Home Minister Shrestha said there would be necessary support to resolve problems as Armed Police Force has been providing its services to citizens and safeguarding borders despite nominal service facilities and insufficient means and resources.

Similarly, the Inspector General of APF, Raju Aryal, said security is itself a complex, sensitive, and challenging issue, adding APF has been performing its duty by following the Home Ministry’s policy, program, order, and directives in letter and spirit honestly.
