Law and Order is states' responsibility but these are linked to the unity and integrity of the nation too," PM Modi said at Chintan Shivir in Surajkund.
"This Chintan Shivir of HMs in Surajkund is an excellent example of cooperative federalism. States can learn from each other, take inspiration from each other and work together for the betterment of the country- this is the sentiment of the Constitution and our duty towards our citizens," PM added.
"The next 25 years will be for the creation of an 'amrit peedhi'. This 'amrit peedhi' will be created by imbibing the resolutions of 'Panch Pran'- creation of a developed India, freedom from all colonial mindset, pride in heritage, unity and most importantly, citizen duty," said PM Narendra Modi.
