Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Home Minister Amit Shah at National Defence University in Gandhinagar today
Gandhinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi dedicated the National Defence University to the nation and addressed its first convocation here today.
The National Defence University is already working with many organizations in different fields to provide guidance to them to fulfil their needs.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on the occasion that the expansion of the university will take place “rapidly” in the coming times, on similar lines as the National Forensic Science University which has entered into agreements with the governments of seven States to open campuses of the National Forensic Science University in three States.
The National Defence University will open its campuses region-wise, Shah said and added that the university will provide both a good environment and infrastructure to professionally train students working at three levels of recruitment – Constable, PSI and DYSP – to handle law and order.
“When National Defence University campuses will open across the country and trained students will work in the police forces in different areas and as experts in the support system of the police, then the task of running police forces in the country with a sense of unity will be achieved by the National Defense University,” he said.
Shah said that a law university, a forensic science university as well as a national defence university were the three major initiatives of Narendra Modi when he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat. All these three aspects related to law and order at a university connected the youth with training from the very outset. “Modi made large scale systemic changes in Gujarat and placed a model before the country, that if students are trained in a particular area, then they will be able to come forward and contribute in their area of training,” Shah said.
