“Peace and communal harmony is essential to bring development. Gujarat never saw any major communal clash in last 10 years, which helped us to bring development here.
Gujarat is the safest state in India having lowest crime rate” said Patel, who thanked Gujarat police for such environment.
“Gujarat police force is the most educated force in India having more than 26,000 educated policemen serving people. I thank the police force for having maintained law and order for these many years and contributing to the development process of the state,” said Patel, who also remembered Narendra Modi for showing the path.
“Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi stressed on strengthening ‘Raksha Shakti'(Defence Power) of the state. Thus, we are now having three dedicated universities working in that direction, including Raksha Shakti University, Forensic Science University and Law university,” said Patel.
“This Academy also proved crucial in providing training to policemen. Till now, 952 policemen, from constables to IPS officers, took training from here. Recently, Goa government has sent 87 of their newly recruited PSIs to take training here,” added Patel.
