Chidambaram praises contribution of CRPF on its 70th anniversary

Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram applauded the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on its 70th anniversary here on Friday.


New Delhi, Nov 27 : Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram applauded the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on its 70th anniversary here on Friday.

Chidambaram inspected a CRPF guard of honour, included one contingent of women, retired personnel and the Rapid Action Force.

He said the paramilitary force has been at the forefront, but added that its personnel, needed to adapt to the changing environment in different states.

"The CRPF is in the forefront on behalf of the government in facing up to the challenges. While the ground situation and working environment are different in different parts of the country, in some there are problems relating to changing environment and CRPF has to quickly adapt to the changing environment," said Chidambaram.

He further said that technology should be the cornerstone of modernisation of the CRPF.

"While we should be firm, decisive, and unrelenting in dealing with those who indulge in violence, we should show a great degree of sensitivity, patience and maturity when we deal with poor people and especially the tribal people. The enhanced security requirements are to be met squarely with increased capacity building measures, professionalism and sharing of intelligence inputs with all the stakeholders. Technology should be the corner stone of your modernisation policy," Chidambaram added.

Chidambaram presented awards to the CRPF personnel and to families of the slain personnel.

The CRPF was created in 1939 at Neemuch, in Madhya Pradesh, with the primary task of lending a helping hand to princely states to maintain law and order.
