A fortnight back, Celina Jaitley had a harrowing experience with the airport authorities in New Delhi during a security check for her flight to Mumbai. While her iPod and Blackberry were damaged, the worst was yet to come as the cops who were apparently responsible for it were found smiling even as Celina was complaining against them. Hurt and disappointed, she spoke her mind out in full public view.
Her words did find listeners as CISF came into action and began an enquiry into the matter. This resulted in the highest placed authorities at CISF waking up to this fact and assuring Celina that all would be done to prevent such an incident from happening again.
Says a source close to Celina, "Mr. Bannerji, who is the Director General CISF, Delhi, has taken special action that this kind of thing doesn't happen again. In fact action has also been taken against the jawans present on the day of the incident. Even Mumbai has acted quickly on this matter with Mr. Sanjay Prakash, CISF Chief, Mumbai taking special measures.
When the biggest of the matters are swept under the carpet, it seems quite commendable that a quick action has been taken in such a small time period. "This is what thrills me most. I really truly appreciate the measure taken and I thank Mr. Bannerji and Mr. Sanjay Prakash. They have apprised me about their plans going forward. After interacting with them, I am sure that our security is under the leadership of ace officers. Kudos to them", says a visibly thrilled Celina who is happy that her point of view has been appreciated.
Apparently, there are also some radical changes that are being made in the training curriculum for CISF jawaans. Going forward there would be added emphasis on dealing with women, especially senior citizens.
"I have been told about this as well", says Celina hours before packing her bags for the shooting schedule of her next film, "I am glad that the people at the top have been responsive to the issue and at least tried to understand my grievance. Of course, as I stated earlier as well, they are there for our own security so passengers too should do their bit and cooperate completely with them."
She is gladdened with all the media support that came her way in her fight against the issue, which resulted in quick turnaround time for issue resolution.
"As a citizen journalist I raised my voice and from there on media ensured that it reaches out to all the concerned stakeholders. I sincerely thank media for standing by me", concludes Celina.
