Union home minister Amit Shah also addressed the gathering. Here are the key points from PM Mod and Amit Shah’s address at the gathering:

  1. This Chintan Shivir of home ministers is an excellent example of cooperative federalism. States can learn from each other, take inspiration from each other & work together for betterment of the country – this is the sentiment of the Constitution & our duty towards our citizens: PM
  2. Strengthening the country’s unity during festivals is a reflection of your preparations. Law & Order is states’ responsibility but these are linked to the unity & integrity of the nation too: PM Modi
  3. The next 25 years will be for the creation of an ‘amrit peedhi’. This ‘amrit peedhi’ will be created by imbibing the resolutions of ‘Panch Pran’ – creation of a developed India, freedom from all colonial mindset, pride in heritage, unity & most importantly, citizen duty: PM Modi
  4. Law and order not restricted to one state now. Crime is turning interstate and international. With technology, criminals now have power to commit crimes in states. Criminals beyond border are misusing tech. Coordination between agencies of all states & between central and state agencies essential: PM
  5. Be it cybercrime or the usage of drone technology for the smuggling of weapons or drugs, we will have to keep working on new technology for them: PM
  6. We entered 5G era. 5G has several benefits, awareness is also needed for the same. With 5G,there’ll be manifold improvement in facial recognition technology, automatic number plate recognition technology, drone & CCTV technology. We’ll have to be 10 steps ahead of crime world: PM
  7. During Covid, police’s reputation improved. They were helping the needy, arranging essentials, risking their own lives. They did not lack in dutifulness. The need is to maintain a good perception. For this, inspiring Police force, planning for it and guiding them should continue: PM
  8. In these two days, home ministry along with CMs, LGs, and governors of states, is discussing law and order & domestic security of the country: Union home minister Amit Shah
  9. Many crimes are happening from across the border like terrorism, narcotics smuggling, money laundering, infiltration; drones being used to smuggle arms & narcotics: Union home minister Amit Shah
  10. As long as there is no equal response from police and central agencies on these issues and if all states do not come together to fight these then it would be impossible to face them: Amit Shah
