The oath has eight points that says that every cop would donate 100 hours every year towards cleanliness. The oath further stated that the police personnel would neither litter nor would he or she allow anyone else to litter.
“We have also asked all the cops to make 100 people take the same oath,” added SSP Bareilly Jogendra Kumar.
