Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday said that the citizens of the state have witnessed the importance of law and order over the past seven years.

Addressing the closing ceremony of the 67th All India Police Duty Meet, the CM said, “Their decision to re-elect this government stems from witnessing the improved law and order situation and security environment in the state. The robust law and order situation in the state has resulted in receiving investment proposals of Rs 40 lakh crores in Global Investors Summit. Whereas before 2017, no one wanted to invest in the state.”

He said that on February 19 investment proposals of more than Rs 10 lakh crore are going to be implemented through a Ground Breaking Ceremony in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “This will directly provide jobs to 35 lakh youths, demonstrating that when law and order is applied with determination, positive results follow,” he said.

Yogi mentioned that various police forces play a crucial role in creating a better environment for the country’s internal security, law and order and safety. “Not only that, but the police force also has a vital role in determining public perception. They face significant challenges in creating this perception and have to work with a dual mindset,” he said.

He emphasised that the police force operate under a zero-tolerance policy towards anti-social and anti-national elements while actively engaging in dialogue and delivering justice to the common man. “This creates a new confidence in the minds of common people. It also reflects the sensitivity of the police force,” he said.

The CM said, “The event is being attended by officers and staff of various forces from across the country. They have their own experiences. Understanding and benefiting from these experiences is essential.”

He mentioned that the tradition of exchange of knowledge in our country has been ancient. Naimisharanya, located 70 kilometers from the capital Lucknow, was a center of exchanging the knowledge of sages thousands of years ago. “It played a significant role in documenting the tradition of Vedic knowledge of India, with 88,000 sages and saints from across the country being part of it,” he said.

He said that the All India Police Duty Meet carries forward this heritage. Knowledge is not just what is written in books but what you experience during field duty.

Yogi said, “We all have to prepare ourselves according to the changing nature of crime. “When we share our best practices in front of the public, we get to know and learn a lot. Similarly, through such competitions and contests, one gets the opportunity to see and learn many things. This is the reason why various competitions have been organised in the state in the last few years.”

He said, “PM Modi often talks about smart policing, keeping in mind the challenges and future needs within the country. During this, he talks about the tough and sensitive police force. When the police force aligns with the system of smart policing, it can successfully tackle current challenges.”

During the programme, Principal Secretary (Home) Sanjay Prasad, DGP Prashant Kumar, and DG RPF Manoj Yadav among others were present.
