Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the ‘Chintan Shivir’ through video conferencing on October 28.
A home ministry statement on Wednesday said that the aim of the conference is to prepare an action plan for implementation of ‘Vision 2047’ and ‘Panch Pran’ announced by the Prime Minister in his Independence Day speech this year. The five resolves listed by PM Modi are — to move forward with bigger resolves and the resolve of developed India; to erase all traces of servitude; to take pride in our legacy; strength of unity for the dreams of ‘Ek Bharat Shreshta Bharat’; and to carry out our respective duties to fulfil the dreams of the country in the next 25 years.
The home ministry stated that the Chintan Shivir will discuss all issues directly linked to national policy making and how to ensure better planning and coordination among Centre, states and UTs, while laying special emphasis on women’s safety, given the ‘nari shakti’ shall play an important role in achieving the goal of ‘developed India by 2047’.
Among the issues set to come up for threadbare discussion are drug trafficking including the NDPS Act, NCORD, NIDAAN and Nasha Mukt Bharat Abhiyan. Protection of borders and development of border areas will be covered under the themes of land border management and coastal security. Enhancing conviction rate by technology-based investigation using ICJS & CCTNS systems and IT modules will also be deliberated upon. Initiatives like safe city project, 112- single emergency response system, anti-human trafficking units in districts, women’s help desks in police stations and biometric identity cards for fishermen will also be come up for brainstorming.
