Mann Ki Baat: PM Narendra Modi pays respects to police personnel killed in action

Mann Ki Baat: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday recalled the police personnel who had laid down their lives in the line of duty and highlighted that presence of women security personnel naturally instills a sense of confidence among the people, especially women.

Addressing the radio programme Mann Ki Baat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “Just a few days ago, on October 21, we celebrated Police Commemoration Day. On this day we especially remember the brave hearts of the police who have laid down their lives in the service of the country. Today I would like to remember these policemen along with their families. A tough service like the police is very difficult without the support and sacrifice of the family.”
