NEW DELHI || Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday reviewed the functioning of CRPF at the Force headquarters in New Delhi where he was also given a detailed presentation on CRPF by Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar, DG, CRPF. High ranking officials of the Ministry, as well as CRPF, were present on the occasion.
On his maiden visit to the CRPF Directorate after assuming charge as the Union Home Minister, Shah was given a ceremonial Guard of Honour. He was then ushered into the entrance where he garlanded the holy URN carrying the sacred soil of Sardar Post, Gujarat-the historic place where mere two companies of CRPF had repulsed an attack by a full brigade of the Pakistani army, way back in 1965.
Earlier, Shah was also briefed about the history of CRPF and also on the gallantry of the Force personnel as he looked through the ‘valour and heritage gallery’ across the lobby. The Minister spent about two hours with the senior officers of the Force before leaving.
He appreciated the valour and the sacrifices of the CRPF and the excellent work being done and their contribution to the internal security of the country. He directed the senior officers to reach out to their juniors and jawans so as to able to appreciate their issues.
