"In people's perception, police means lathi, conflict and fight. Police force's humanitarian works are seldom noticed. But the human face of Khaki uniform has been engraved in the public memory due to the good work done by police especially during this COVID-19 pandemic," PM Modi said while interacting with IPS Probationers. When an IPS Probationer shared her experience of joining an anti-terror operation in Jammu and Kashmir, the Prime Minister said women officers can stop youths from going on the wrong path.
Speaking to Kiran Shruthi, the best all-round probationer who commanded the passing out parade, PM Modi discussed mental stress. "Yoga and Pranayam is good for all those working under stress. If you do any work from your heart, you will always benefit. You will never feel stressed no matter how much work is there," he said.
