“Our nation is passing through a transitional phase and honest & dedicated citizens are the need of the hour. Only healthy people can contribute in nation building and resurgence of the society. Policemen are the defender of society and so they can perform their duties if and only if they are healthy with body and mind. In the changing socio-democratic scenario, the police has to play a greater role as they are the actual protectors of our democracy.” – told Swami Ramdev addressing the policemen in the Punjab Armed Police Complex at Chandigarh.
