New Delhi: The National Institution for Transforming India Aayog CEO Amtabh Kant today emphasized the need to focus on the national security and the economic development for the country’s growth and development saying that both the terms have symbolic relationship with each other.




While inaugurating the first National Conference of Micro Missions of National Police Mission, Kant went on to say: “Economic development is closely linked with internal security. Actually they have a symbiotic relationship. You can’t have economic development without internal security and you can’t have internal security without economic development.”

The two-day event was organised by the Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D).




Kant, a 1980 batch Indian Administrative Service officer of Kerala cadre, said if police does not act as major agent in social change, it will be very difficult for India to rapidly grow.

“We need to completely take a fresh look. My belief is that it will be very difficult for India to rapidly grow unless and until police does not act as a major agent of social change.”




“My belief is also that since police has very large presence on the ground, it can provide very valuable feedback to the states and the government in the functioning of many of the schemes in a very effective manner,” Kant said.
