One Nation, One Uniform: PM Modi proposes idea for police

Surajkund (Haryana): The idea of "One Nation, One Uniform" for police was raised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday. He emphasised that this was just a suggestion and he was not attempting to compel the states to adopt it.

Speaking to a "Chintan Shivir" of state home ministers, Modi also pushed for close state-to-state collaboration to combat crime and criminals.

He asserted that cooperative federalism was not only the spirit of the Constitution but also the duty of the states and central government as a whole.

"The One Nation, One Uniform for police is just an idea. I am not trying to impose it on you. Just give it a thought. It may happen, it may happen in 5, 50, or 100 years. Just think over it," Modi said.

The prime minister said he thinks that the identity of the police across the country could be identical.

He also urged the state governments to review old laws and amend them to the current context as he batted for coordinated action by all the agencies to meet the emerging challenges of law and order and security.

Modi said it was "very important" to maintain a good perception of police and that the "wrongs here" should be addressed.

He said police and intelligence agencies should cooperate with each other to ensure efficiency, better outcomes and protection for the common man.

The prime minister said the good old system of generating human intelligence by the police and security agencies should be strengthened for achieving better results.
