At”Chintan Shivir” programme, PM Modi proposed for “One Nation, One Uniform”.
By Press Trust of India– Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday mooted the idea of “One Nation, One Uniform” for police, saying it is just a suggestion for consideration and he is not trying to impose it on the states.
Addressing a “Chintan Shivir” of state home ministers, Modi also advocated close cooperation among the states to tackle crimes and criminals.
He said cooperative federalism was not only the feeling of the Constitution but also the responsibility of the states and the Centre.
“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. But let’s give it a thought,” Modi said.
The prime minister said he thinks that the identity of the police across the country could be identical.
He also urged the state governments to review old laws and amend them to the current context as he batted for coordinated action by all the agencies to meet the emerging challenges of law and order and security.
Modi said it was “very important” to maintain a good perception of police and the “wrongs here” should be addressed.
Even though law and order is a state subject as per the Constitution, they are equally linked with unity and integrity of the country, he said.
Modi said every state should learn, get inspired from each other and work together for internal security.
“Working together of states for internal security is a constitutional mandate as well as responsibility towards the nation,” he added.
The prime minister said all agencies — both central as well as that of states — should cooperate with each other to ensure efficiency, better outcome and protection to the common man.
He said law and order is directly linked to development and hence it is everyone’s responsibility to maintain peace.
“When the strength of the country will increase, the power of every citizen, every family will increase,” he noted.
