During last month's Goa by-elections had the occasion to interact with some officers and constables of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) who were deployed here on election duty. It was horrifying to know the pathetic working and living conditions of these personnel who are shunted around the country wherever they are required. It was further painful to hear that due to work related stress, the suicide rate amongst the CISF is very high.  This force which works so dedicatedly and very professionally sometimes even putting their lives at risk must be well taken care of. Prime Minister Narendra Modi should ensure that the salaries, perks and benefits of the CISF and the well being of their families is enhanced to commensurate with the extremely hard work they put in their line of duty.   If the Government does not come to their rescue, this would be a fit case for the National Human Rights Commission to intervene.
