New Delhi: Union home minister Amit Shah on Wednesday said it was imperative to bolster the country’s national security in order to achieve India’s potential to become a $5-trillion economy by 2024.

Speaking on the sidelines of a Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D) event, Shah said, “PM Modi wants to make India a $5 trillion economy, and he wants to put India among the top three in the world. But economic progress is not possible without national security. There is a need to maintain external security and internal security by way of law and order in the states."

He said it was imperative to recognize that “over 34,000 personnel had sacrificed their lives to maintain law and order," and urged the police force to “carry forward the good work done by your colleagues".

The home minister said police reforms including changes to the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), were imminent, and the move will help the various police departments across India.
