While addressing the fresh recruits, the PM highlighted, “In previous years, we provided an opportunity for numerous tribal youth from Chhattisgarh’s Naxal-affected region to join the security forces. By facilitating recruitment procedures, our intention was to integrate them into the mainstream of development.”

These newly appointed people, chosen from diverse corners of the country, will assume roles as constables (general duty), sub-inspectors (GD), and non-GD cadre posts.

Acknowledging their selection during the “Amrit Kaal,” the prime minister termed them ‘Amrit Rakshak’ (Guardians of Nectar), lauding not just their dedication to serving the nation but also their role in safeguarding it along with its citizens.

“Youth like you play a pivotal role in steering the progress and advancement of our nation,” PM Modi added.

Furthermore, he acknowledged the recent historic achievement of Chandrayaan 3, emphasizing that the present times are characterized by an atmosphere of immense national joy and pride.

Beyond marking a significant milestone for the freshly recruited individuals, the ceremony underscored the symbiotic relationship existing among national security, the rule of law, economic growth, and employment opportunities.
