On Thursday, PM Narendra Modi hailed the police forces for preserving law and order in the country. The appreciation was done by the Prime Minister through a tweet on the occasion of the Police Commemoration Day. He has also paid homage to the police personnel who have lost their lives on duty.

The PM tweeted, “On Police Commemoration Day, I would like to acknowledge the outstanding efforts by our police forces in preserving law and order and assisting others in times of need. I pay homage to all those police personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty.”

The Police Commemoration Day is celebrated every year on October 21, in order to pay tribute to the police personnel who have died while performing their duty. Last year, homage was also paid to the policemen who lost their lives in the Covid-19 pandemic. The Indian Police Service (Central) Association tweeted on Thursday, “On the occasion of Police Commemoration Day, we pay homage to the brave hearts who lost their lives for the country in the line of duty. The nation will never forget their sacrifices.”

Earlier in 2018, the National Police Memorial in New Delhi was unveiled by Modi. While addressing the occasion he remembered the policemen who were killed on duty in Jammu and Kashmir and the Maoist inflicted areas. Back in 2002, the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led government suggested the formation of a police memorial in the country. In 2019, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, while addressing the occasion on this day, stated that the police memorial reminds the country of each drop of the martyr’s blood which has contributed to the development of the country.
