Internal security is the top priority of the Modi government, Home Minister Amit Shah said on Friday, emphasising that several steps have been taken to ensure it, including improving vigil on the borders and cracking down on fake notes. 

Inaugurating the Delhi Police headquarters, he stressed on the need to change the image of police. The new police headquarters on Jai Singh Road in Lutyens’ Delhi has been built in a public private partnership mode at a total cost of Rs 286 crores. The new PHQ is spread over an area of about eight acres and the building has 17 floors which will accommodate all the functionally required officers, control rooms, conference rooms, control and communication centre.

“Internal security is on the top of the priority list of the Modi government. We have undertaken a lot of work to improve security on the borders and crackdown on fake notes,” Shah said, adding that security forces are working diligently towards accomplishing it. 

He paid tributes to Delhi Police personnel, who lost their lives in the 2001 Parliament attack and were conferred with Kirti Chakra, and to inspector Mohan Chand Sharma killed during the Batla House encounter. — PTI
