New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi suggests that maintaining law and order is the responsibility of the states, but it also affects the integrity and unity of the country. Prime Minister Modi spoke via video conferencing to the home ministers of different states in the Chintan Shivir, praising the ongoing brainstorming session at Surajkund in Haryana as a “great model of cooperative federalism.”
The Constitution expresses the idea that states should cooperate for the good of the nation and that they can learn from one another and be inspired by one another. That is our duty towards our citizens, he said.
Additionally, he suggested that states and UTs should discuss “one nation, one police uniform” if it is possible.
The aim of the Shivir is to modernise the police forces, annihilate cybercrime, and increase use of IT in the criminal justice system, land border management, coastal security, women’s safety, drug trafficking, among others.
In today’s Shivir, eight chief ministers of different states, home ministers, and deputy chief ministers of 16 states have been taking part, which is being chaired by Union home minister Amit Shah.
Amit Shah said, “Taking inspiration from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, this Chintan Shivir would provide a collective platform to face several challenges which have been faced by the nation, such as cyber-crime, the spread of narcotics, cross-border terrorism and so on. He also talked about J-K and the Northeast, which are developing steadily.
All states should have a common agenda for controlling crime because the nature of crime has changed at the moment. Amit Shah further added that the Union government has been promoting the 3Cs, that is, Cooperation, Coordination, and Collaboration between the Centre and the States.
