Governance is about enhancing dignity to the very last person in the queue: Shri Modi 

26,000 recruitments but no taint of corruption on our force. Glad even poor, children of widows joining the force to serve nation: Shri Modi

 

On Tuesday 12th June 2012, Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed the police passing parade in Vadodara. Shri Modi gave an inspiring speech to the youngsters and also shared insights into the some of the efforts to modernize Gujarat’s police force.

The Chief Minister congratulated the youngsters and said that such trainings are trainings for life and not a mere 8-month affair. It is when we will incorporate the ideals of this training in our lives that the real meaning of the training will come out.

On the occasion, Shri Modi stated that the youngsters who passed out are privileged as they took their oath in the name of our Constitution and the Tricolour. He added that such oaths are not mere recitation of words but contain values that must be the driving force of our lives. He reminded that there were many individuals who gave up their lives for the tri colour and while we have not had that good fortune, we are atleast blessed to live for it. He described the Tricolour was the life of a billion Indians and was our pride.

In his speech, Shri Modi talked about the importance of ‘Last Mile Connectivity.’ He said that good governance is one that goes till the last man or woman. He cited the importance Gujarat has given to Anganwadis by adding dignity in them.

On Gujarat’s police, he said that there has been grass root level recruitment and Gujarat’s police force is the youngest police force as compared to the rest of the country. He declared that over the past few years a qualitative change has come about in the police force. He shared that among the 419 pass outs of the day’s parade, 410 are either graduates are post-graduates. With such a competent police force, a qualitative change is bound to come, Shri Modi said.

Speaking on the importance of technology, Shri Modi said that Gujarat has made path breaking efforts to enhance Human Resource Development through technology be it through Raksha Shakti University, Forensic Science University or training in crime detection.

The Chief Minister further pointed out that 26,000 recruitments were made over the past few years and it was a matter of great happiness that the taint of corruption has not come on the Gujarat police force. Even the process of recruitment has been fair and now children of poor, widows are getting opportunities to serve the nation, Shri Modi added.

At the invitation of the President of the European Council Mr. Charles Michel, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the India-EU Leaders’ Meeting today.

The meeting was held in a hybrid format with the participation of leaders of all the 27 EU Member States as well as the President of the European Council and the European Commission. This is the first time that the EU hosted a meeting with India in the EU+27 format. The meeting was the initiative of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

During the meeting, the leaders expressed their desire to further strengthen the India-EU Strategic Partnership based on a shared commitment to democracy, fundamental freedoms, rule of law and multilateralism. They exchanged views on three key thematic areas: i) foreign policy and security; ii) COVID-19, climate and environment; and iii) trade, connectivity and technology. They discussed forging closer cooperation on combating the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recovery, tackling climate change, and reforming multilateral institutions. India appreciated the prompt assistance provided by the EU and its member states to combat its second COVID wave.

The leaders welcomed the decision to resume negotiations for balanced and comprehensive free trade and investment agreements. Negotiations on both the Trade and Investment Agreements will be pursued on parallel tracks with an intention to achieve early conclusion of both agreements together. This is a major outcome which will enable the two sides to realise the full potential of the economic partnership. India and the EU also announced dedicated dialogues on WTO issues, regulatory cooperation, market access issues and supply chain resilience, demonstrating the desire to deepen and further diversify economic engagement.

India and the EU launched an ambitious and comprehensive ‘Connectivity Partnership’ which is focused on enhancing digital, energy, transport and people-to-people connectivity. The Partnership is based on the shared principles of social, economic, fiscal, climate and environmental sustainability, and respect for international law and commitments. The Partnership will catalyse private and public financing for connectivity projects. It will also foster new synergies for supporting connectivity initiatives in third countries, including in the Indo-Pacific.

India and the EU leaders reiterated their commitment to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and agreed to strengthen joint efforts for mitigation, adaptation and resilience to the impacts of climate change, as well as providing means of implementation including finance in the context of COP26. India welcomed the EU’s decision to join CDRI.

India and the EU also agreed to enhance bilateral cooperation on digital and emerging technologies such as 5G, AI, Quantum and High-Performance Computing including through the early operationalization of the Joint Task Force on AI and the Digital Investment Forum.

The leaders noted with satisfaction the growing convergences on regional and global issues, including counterterrorism, cybersecurity and maritime cooperation. The leaders acknowledged the importance of a free, open, inclusive and rules-based Indo-Pacific and agreed to closely engage in the region, including in the context of India’s Indo-Pacific Ocean’s Initiative and the EU’s new strategy on the Indo-Pacific.

Coinciding with the Leaders’ Meeting, an India-EU Business Roundtable was organised to highlight the avenues for cooperation in climate, digital and healthcare. A finance contract of Euro 150 million for the Pune Metro Rail Project was signed by the Ministry of Finance, Government of India, and European Investment Bank.

India-EU Leaders Meeting has set a significant milestone by providing a new direction to the Strategic Partnership and giving a fresh impetus for implementing the ambitious India-EU Roadmap 2025 adopted at the 15th India-EU Summit held in July 2020.
