65% decrease in terrorist and insurgency-related occurrences in the Northeast: Amit Shah

According to Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday, instances of terrorism, Left Wing Extremism, and insurgency have decreased by 65% in the Northeast.

According to Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday, instances of terrorism, Left Wing Extremism, and insurgency have decreased by 65% in the Northeast.

The Northeast, Jammu and Kashmir, and the country’s “three hotspots — LWE (Left Wing Extremism-hit states) — are becoming peaceful,” he added.

After honoring martyrs on Police Commemoration Day at the National Police Memorial, the home minister told a crowd that the Narendra Modi administration had enacted stringent legislation while upholding a zero-tolerance stance against terrorism.

According to him, the establishment of the “Police Technology Mission” for the modernization of the police force was another effort by the government to create the best anti-terrorism force in the world.

According to Shah, the Modi administration has submitted three bills to Parliament that would completely restructure the criminal justice system. The three new laws, according to the minister, will replace 150-year-old statutes and ensure that each person is given all appropriate protections under the Constitution. The proposed laws will also be Indian-centric.

“There has been a 65 per cent fall in terror, Left Wing Extremism and insurgency incidents in the Northeast, thanks to the efforts and achievements of police personnel,” Shah stated.

He claimed that police officers had demonstrated their abilities in a variety of circumstances, including battling terrorists, preventing crime, upholding law and order in front of large crowds, and shielding people during calamities.

In response to a question on the role performed by police officers in disasters, he noted that in the past, through the NDRF (National Disaster Response Force), people from various police forces gained recognition in disaster management on a global scale.

“No matter how big the disaster is, when NDRF personnel reach there, people get confidence that now there is no problem as the NDRF has arrived,” he stated.

By sometimes making modifications to the many programs being run for the welfare of police officers, according to Shah, the Modi government is attempting to improve them.

The Modi administration is committed to all employees’ welfare and is worried about their safety, he said.

In honor of the 36,250 police officers who have given their lives in the line of duty since the country’s independence, he noted that this police memorial is more than just a token of their commitment to nation-building.

Ten police officers lost their lives while performing their duties on October 21, 1959, when heavily armed Chinese forces ambushed them at the Hot Springs in Ladakh. Since then, October 21 has been set aside each year to honor these martyrs and all those police officers who have lost their lives while performing their duties.

On Police Commemoration Day in 2018, Prime Minister Narendra Modi dedicated the National Police Memorial (NPM) at Chanakyapuri to the country in honor of the sacrifices made by police officers and their crucial role in upholding national security and integrity.

A central sculpture, the “Wall of Valor,” and a museum make up the memorial.

The centerpiece sculpture, a 30-foot-tall granite monolith cenotaph, honors police officers’ fortitude, resiliency, and selfless service.

A constant reminder of the courage and sacrifice of police officers who have given their lives in the line of duty since independence is the “Wall of Valor,” which bears the names of martyrs.

The museum is designed as an evolving historical exhibit on Indian policing.
