He appreciated the officers for looking at all issues in the national perspective. He described this as the biggest achievement of the changed nature of this annual Conference over the last few years.

He praised the police forces for their success in countering terrorism, and limiting it to a small geographic area of the country. He said the people of India are, in particular, proud of the police force in Jammu and Kashmir, for their role in countering terrorists, and successfully engaging them.

He urged the police forces across the country to be vigilant in countering the dark forces of radicalization, and to engender trust among all communities across the nation.

The Prime Minister stressed on the importance of Inter-State coordination, in tackling crime.

He urged the police forces to continue working for the unity and integrity of India. Let us strengthen forces that promote unity, and isolate divisive forces at the grassroots level, he exhorted the gathering.

Shri Narendra Modi said that police personnel work hard in adverse circumstances. Yet, he added, they often do not receive the recognition they deserve. He called upon senior officers to work towards greater recognition of police personnel who work for the benefit of the people. He said that social media can be used effectively for this purpose.

The Prime Minister emphasized on the need for capacity building in the police forces, on the subject of cyber security.

The Prime Minister appreciated the parade by the police forces of various States yesterday, at the Statue of Unity. He said it would truly have been inspirational for all those who witnessed it.

PM Modi addresses a vivacious crowd in Pataliputra, Bihar

Prime Minister Narendra Modi graced the historic land of Pataliputra, Bihar, vowing to tirelessly drive the nation’s growth and prevent the opposition from dividing the country on the grounds of inequality.

As PM Modi further delved into his spirited address, he praised the dedication of BJP workers, attributing the party's success to their tireless efforts. He humorously noted the popularity of Maner ladoos, urging supporters to have them ready for June 4th. PM Modi also pointed out that the opposition's complaints about EVMs are the best indicator of NDA's impending victory. He confidently declared that new records would be set in Pataliputra and across the nation, echoing the sentiment, "Phir Ek Baar...Modi Sarkar!"

PM Modi highlighted the stark contrast between his vision and the opposition's focus. On one side, he is dedicated to building a Viksit and Aatmanirbhar Bharat by 2047, “working tirelessly to enhance national security and modernize infrastructure.” On the other side, “the INDI Alliance has no agenda but to criticize Modi and cater to their vote bank. The choice is clear: progress and development with Modi, or constant negativity with the INDI Alliance.”

PM Modi emphasized the importance of the upcoming election, not just for choosing MPs but for selecting the right PM. He underscored India's need for a strong leader who can showcase the nation's power on the global stage. Contrasting this vision, the PM highlighted the INDI Alliance’s plan to deliver five different PMs in five years, “The contenders? A parade of family members: sons and daughters from the Gandhi, SP, National Conference, NCP, TMC, AAP, fake Shiv Sena, and RJD families. Their aim is to play musical chairs with the Prime Minister's seat, driven by dynastic politics rather than national interest.”

In his address, PM Modi also underscored Bihar's historic role in championing social justice and the right to reservation for SC/ST/OBC communities. However, he revealed a bitter truth. “The RJD-Congress and their allies are betraying these very communities. The Constitution and Baba Saheb Ambedkar clearly state there should be no reservation based on religion. Yet, the RJD-Congress are conspiring to allocate SC/ST/OBC quotas to their vote bank, undermining constitutional principles,” he remarked.

PM Modi also exposed this betrayal, stating, “Every caste, including Yadav, Kurmi, Kushwaha, Kalwar, Teli, Suri, Kanu, Nishad, Paswan, Ravidas, and Musahar, has been robbed of their rightful reservation. These actions are not just unconstitutional but also a grave injustice to the children of Dalits, backward classes, and tribals, whose admission quotas have been unfairly reduced in favour of Muslims.” This, he emphasized, is a stark violation of the principles of social justice and the Constitution.

PM Modi shared his understanding of what it means to have one's rights taken away. This empathy drives his commitment to ensuring the poor receive their due. He reminded the crowd of the days “when Congress allowed grains to rot while refusing to feed the poor”, contrasting it with his own “policy of opening warehouse doors to every needy person, ensuring no mother stays awake worrying about feeding her child.”

PM Modi also announced plans to build more pucca houses, equipped with toilets, electricity, cheap gas cylinders, and tap water. He mentioned about the PM Suryaghar Yojana, which aims to reduce electricity bills to zero and install solar panels, allowing families to use free electricity and even earn by selling the surplus to the government.

As he concluded his speech, PM Modi urged everyone to visit local temples and seek blessings for a Viksit Bharat. He passionately encouraged the crowd to vote for the BJP, saying, "Let's ensure victory for a stronger, prosperous nation!"
