Mumbai: National Police Memorial in Delhi should be on everyone’s agenda when they visit Delhi, as it is a proud place for all to remember martyrs; we are planning to build a police memorial in every district, said Minister of State (MoS) for Home Affairs, Government of India, G. Kishan Reddy in Pune yesterday.
Reddy said this while speaking to Media, upon the conclusion of All India Conference of DGPs & IGPs at IISER, Pune. Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi (read address) and Home Minister Amit Shah (read address) had headed the conference, where Modi had also met with scientists and urged them to develop low cost technologies that would cater to India’s specific requirements and help in fast-tracking India’s growth.
The Police Memorial will help improve the image of police personnel, who keep toiling 320 days in a year without worrying about their families and relations while performing their duties, said Reddy, adding that the entire police force should not be discredited for individual cases.
We will try to modernise the police and impart more training to police forces, Reddy added. Minister of State for Home Affairs, Government of India, Nityanand Rai was also present.
On the occasion, Reddy and Rai paid homage at Hutatma Smarak, followed by a visit to the Maharashtra Police Museum at Centre for Police Research (CPR) in Pune.
