He lauded the contribution and sacrifice of Delhi Police towards the country's development and he remembered Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel as well.

'It is a matter of pride...'

While addressing the gathering, Shah, remembering Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel said, "It is a matter of pride that the Delhi Police was started by the Iron Man of India, Sardar Patel, himself. I am certain it still provides inspiration to the entire organisation."

'35,000 policemen have laid their lives for the nation'

The Union Home Minister said, "Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent positive comments must have inspired every police officer of Delhi Police. We must also remember that over 35,000 policemen have laid their lives for the security of the nation. He acknowledged the sacrifices of these 35,000 and more policemen and built a National Police Memorial in Delhi. It lays the testimony of these sacrifices."

Shah also lauded Delhi Police for introducing new schemes to reduce crime in the region. "Delhi Police has initiated the smart policing scheme, Dial 112 scheme under the Nirbhaya Fund of Government of India and have also started the National Cyber Forensic Lab to help citizens from cybercrimes."
