What’s common among Chulbul Pandey, Singham and Simba? Apart from being no-nonsense police Officers, they all sported trademark moustaches.
Now, in a bid to encourage policemen in Uttar Pradesh to grow and ‘maintain’ moustache ‘which adds gravitas to their personality’, the police department has floated a proposal to raise the ‘mooch allowance’ given to PAC personnel.
Sources claimed that a proposal has been sent to increase the monthly allowances for the upkeep of facial crops from 50 to 250.
ADG (Additional director general of police), PAC (Provincial Armed Constabulary), Binod Kumar Singh, who has sent the proposal, confirmed his recommendation about the hike but was non-committal on the quantum.
The move is being seen as an attempt to revive the old tradition of cops sporting robust mustache, especially the handlebar and the ones that twirled rakishly along the upper lip, that is supposed to add a dash of machismo to a policeman’s personality.
