The prime minister also made it a point that it is everyone’s responsibility to maintain peace as law and order are directly linked to development.
Chintan Shivir: What is the objective?
The Prime Minister’s Office said the exercise is an endeavour to provide national perspective to policy formulation on internal security related matters in accordance with the ‘Panch Pran’ (five pledges) announced by Modi in his Independence Day speech.
The ‘shivir’ in the spirit of cooperative federalism will bring more synergy in planning and coordination between various stakeholders at Centre and state levels, it added.
Participants are expected to deliberate on issues like modernisation of police forces, cybercrime management, increased use of IT in the criminal justice system, land border management, coastal security, women safety and drug trafficking among other issues.
The five pledges listed by Modi were working to have a developed India by 2047, erasing all traces of servitude, developing pride in India’s legacy, keeping unity and fulfilling one’s duties.
