No plans to join politics: Madiyal

By Our Staff Correspondent



The Director-General and Inspector-General of Police, T. Madiyal, being given a send off by police personnel in Mysore on Thursday.

MYSORE, JUNE 24. The Director-General and Inspector-General of Police, T. Madiyal, today ruled out joining politics after his retirement. In an informal chat with media persons, Mr. Madiyal, who is set to retire next week and was accorded a warm send off by the Mysore police, said that he wished to lead a quiet and a peaceful life.

He was reacting to a query on his post-retirement plans and whether he wished to join politics like many of his compatriots. "I don't think every official who retires from service should join politics'', he said.

On the STF operations against the forest brigand, Veerappan, Mr. Madiyal said that the bandit was on the run and that his strength had been diminished due to the relentless pursuit by the Special Task Force and that was a cause for satisfaction. But sooner or later he was bound to be caught, he said.

Denying reports that the Government was seeking the assistance of an Israeli agency in capturing Veerappan, Mr. Madiyal said that sophisticated weapons were being purchased to facilitate the STF operations which were being under trying circumstances and that Israel was one of the countries which would supply the arms. He commended the performance of the State police during the elections to the Assembly and the Parliament and said that it was to their credit that the elections went off peacefully.

Earlier, Mr. Madiyal reviewed a parade held in his honour and took the salute. In all 12 contingents from the Mounted Police, KSRP, Traffic Police and Women's Police participated in the parade led by S.G. Maribashetty.

Senior officers, including the Inspector-General of Police (Southern Range), Y.R. Patil, the Commissioner of Police, Bipin Gopalkrishna, Superintendents of Police from Mysore, Mandya, Hassan and Chamarajanagar, were present.
