Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday addressed Chintan Shivir of home ministers of states via video conferencing.
The two-day Chintan Shivir is being held at Surajkund, Haryana. Home Secretaries and Director Generals of Police (DGPs) of the States and Director Generals of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) and Central Police Organisations (CPOs) will attend the Chintan Shivir.
Addressing a “Chintan Shivir” the Prime Minister said he thinks that the identity of the police across the country could be identical. “The One Nation, One Uniform for police is just an idea. I am not trying to impose it on you. Just give it a thought. It may happen, it may happen in 5, 50, or 100 years. Just think over it,” PM Modi said.
