Gurgoan: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today lauded the CRPF personnel for their role in Kashmir valley.
Addressing troops of the country’s lead anti-Naxal operations force CRPF on the occasion of their 79th Raising Day, the union home minister asked CRPF personnel to continue rendering their “multi-dimenisonal” role in various theatres like ‘insurgency’ in the Kashmir valley and the north east as also against the LWE ‘menace’.
Lauding the role of the CRPF in and outside the valley Rajnath said: “You have always given a muh tod jawab (befitting reply) to these activities” while adding that the CRPF men and women did not “lose their patience” during the deteriorating ‘security situation’ in the Kashmir valley.
He praised the courage of CRPF Commandant Chetan Cheeta who had taken nine bullets during an operation in Kashmir valley last year.
Singh said security forces like the CRPF need to ensure that no obstacle comes in the way of India becoming an economic super power.
