PM Modi interacts with IPS probationers, harps on ‘human face’ of khaki

Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with Indian Police Service (IPS) probationers via video conferencing during the ‘Dikshant Parade’ event at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy in Hyderabad on Friday.

Talking of stress that cops on duty go through, PM Modi urged schools to prepare write-ups telling how cops on duty amid the pandemic had helped the common man in crisis.

“Workload and pressure are on everyone even on the farmers. This is a part of life and this is not something which cannot be managed. If we understand our needs and responsibilities in detail, we can manage things smoothly. In your profession, unexpected events occur and you have to be always ready. Regular training is also vital,” he said.

Talking of yoga and pranayam, he said, “I urge you all that when you go out for doing duty, try to meet people or even teachers who can talk on such topics. This will help you in leading a stress-free life. Also, if you practice yoga and ‘Pranayama’ done with will power, you will never be stressed and always be happy.”

As many as 131 IPS probationers including 28 lady probationers have completed 42 weeks of basic course phase-I training at the academy, according to a release by PMO.

PM also talked about improving the image of the police officers in public eye and urged schools to write about the instances telling that how cops on duty amid pandemic have helped the common man in crisis.

“For people, the image of police was always of beating but it does not mean they have not done any humanitarian work. Society never realised the impact of their work. But during COVID-19 pandemic, people saw how these police officials in khaki were serving food and water to the people, to homeless, running campaigns to make people aware about the disease and taking people to hospitals. The human face of Khaki uniform has been engraved in the public memory due to the good work done by police,” he said. 

A total of 131 IPS probationers including 28 lady Probationers have completed 42 weeks of Basic Course Phase-I training at the Academy.

“It is very important that you should be proud of your uniform instead of flexing power of your uniform. Never lose the respect for your Khaki uniform,” PM Modi told the young police officers.

Holding out a word of caution, he said, “Be over conscious, first impression is the last impression. Wherever you are transferred your image will follow. Be careful.”

During the basic course training at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy, probationers undergo training in various indoor and outdoor subjects like law, investigation, forensics, leadership and management, criminology, public order and internal security, ethics and human rights, modern Indian policing, fieldcraft and tactics, weapon training and firing.
