Need To Prevent J&K Youth From Taking Wrong Path, PM Modi Says

SRINAGAR: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday urged women police personnel to engage women in Jammu and Kashmir to prevent youth from taking to terrorism at an early stage itself. Prime Minister Modi was interacted with IPS probationers through a video conference during the ‘Dikshant Parade Event’ at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy in Hyderabad, reported The Indian Express.

According to report, during the interaction, the Prime Minister while talking about the issue of militancy in Jammu and Kashmir said, “We need to prevent youth from taking the wrong path at the early stage itself. Women police personnel can do that by involving women there.”

Praising the Police for their work during the Covid-19 pandemic, PM Modi said, “The human face of Khaki uniform has been engraved in the public memory due to the good work done by police especially during this COVID-19 pandemic. It is very important that you should be proud of your uniform instead of flexing power of your uniform. Never lose respect for your Khaki uniform.”

“Yours is a profession where the factor of encountering something unexpected is very high, and you all must be alert and prepared for this. There is a higher degree of stress, and which is why it is important to keep speaking with your near and dear ones. From time to time, maybe on a day off, meet someone like a teacher or someone whose advice you value,” The Indian Express quoted PM Modi as saying.

“In Delhi, I regularly interact with young IPS officers who have passed out from here. But this year due to Corona, I’m unable to meet you all. But I’m sure that during my tenure, I will surely meet you all at some point,” he said.

As many as 131 IPS probationers, including 28 women, have completed their 42 weeks of basic course phase-I training at the academy. They joined the academy on Dec 17, 2018, after completing their foundation course at the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration, Mussoorie, and at Dr Marri Channa Reddy HRD Institute of Telangana, Hyderabad, with those from other central services like IAS and IFS, reported The Indian Express.
