Srinagar: On the occasion of Police Memorial Day, Union Home Minister Amit Shah paid tributes to the martyred policemen at the National Police Memorial. During this, Amit Shah said about Jammu and Kashmir that earlier the youth used to be involved in stone pelting, but now they are participating in various development schemes being run by the government. Amit Shah said that under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi, many important steps have been taken by the government to strengthen the internal security of the country.
According to the report, Amit Shah said during this time that there have been positive changes in terms of the internal security of the country. Earlier, many such major incidents used to take place in the northeastern states of the country and Jammu and Kashmir. Earlier, special powers were given to the security forces, but now the youth have been given special powers for their development. This has led to a decline in violence. He said the security situation in the northeastern states, Jammu and Kashmir, and Naxal-affected areas has improved in the last eight years.
On Police Commemoration Day, the Home Minister said that India will move towards its goal of all-around development by ensuring internal security, and complete security at the borders. He said, 'I want to assure everyone that the sacrifice of the policemen will not go in vain, will ensure the security of the country at any cost.' Amit Shah said that the police personnel were posted on the front lines during the global pandemic coronavirus. 35,000 police personnel sacrificed their lives while protecting internal security and international borders.
Shah said that today the national anthem is being sung in Eklavya schools located in Left-wing Extremism (LWE) affected states and the national flag is hoisted on their buildings. The Home Minister said that due to the sacrifice of police and paramilitary personnel across the country, India is moving forward on the path of development. Police Commemoration Day is celebrated in memory of the 10 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel who were martyred during the retaliatory action of a Chinese attack in the Hot Springs area of Ladakh in 1959.
