PM Modi, HM Amit Shah greets CRPF personnel on raising day of force

Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel on the raising day of the force, and said it has distinguished itself for its unflinching courage and service.

The prime minister said, “Raising Day greetings to all @crpfindia personnel and their families. This force has distinguished itself for its unflinching courage and distinguished service. The role of CRPF, be it in addressing security challenges or humanitarian challenges is commendable.”

Union home minister Amit Shah said that the CRPF has “not only made a unique contribution in keeping the security of the country”, but also, he added, that the force has “created a proud history of valor”.

“With his bravery @crpfindia has not only made a unique contribution in keeping the security of the country intact but has also created a proud history of valor, which every Indian is proud of. I congratulate the CRPF personnel on the 83rd Raising Day and salute their service and dedication to the nation,” Amit Shah said.

The CRPF was raised on July 27 in 1939 as Crown Representative’s Police before a change in its nomenclature after Independence. The force is the country’s largest central police force and plays a critical role in counter-insurgency measures.
