He who calls himself a yogi should always be positive.

Some people watch positive side of thing and some negative. Those who watch the negative side are good for nothing and only complain. So we should not care of their opinion and go ahead. He who calls himself a yogi should be always positive. And if there is positivity, he must appreciate and give suggestion to improve. He must have tremendous patience. If he says there is corruption in the government, he must also appreciate all the action the government has taken against corruption. He will do it if he is impartial. And a Yogi must be impartial. If he is not he is not a yogi, he is simply a member of a Political Party, and opposes the other Party, and must not have a mask of a yogi. If he criticizes, he must welcome criticism. If he says some one is in possession of black-money, he is suposed to come clean and declare his incomes, as well said by Congress leader Digvijay Singh Ji. If he is asked to do it, how can it be wrong! A yogi tolerates anything and everything and never talks about negative things in public, whether he is called a dog or whatever.

If we have a bad traffic on roads, who is responsible for that; if a mothers son dies in road accident who is responsible for that; it's corruption, corrupt police department, corrupt system which is responsible for that. If there is no speed control who is responsible for that; what the state government is doing in this regard. If the police department is corrupt and do not investigate a case properly, who is responsible for that. If there is heavy encroachment on national highways and public roads which is also the cause of death in road accident who is responsible for that. If there is big holes on roads who is responsible for that. Are the state governments there to make our life safe or they are there to enjoy the evil power. Who is responsible for the deaths of police men in so-called naxal attacks. Why the hell the state government is not providing them with enough ammunition. Why the state government is not adhering to all the recommendation to lessen the deaths of police men and also to minimize the violation of human rights. Why our government is so weak. Do they think they have purchased the votes with hundred rupee notes.

Violence against our women should be severely punished.

As per our Constitution, the responsibility for maintenance of public order and peace rests with the states. But, in view of the complex and ever changing nature of problems we face, states often need Central assistance in these areas. It is only through a process of continuous and meaningful interaction between the Centre and the states that problems of left-wing extremism, cross-border terrorism and religious fundamentalism can be tackled and tackled effectively. Let me reaffirm today that the Central government stands committed to assisting states in all possible ways in these areas. But, while the Centre can provide resources, guidance and information, the basic task of modernizing state police forces, inducting better equipment, improving the quality of police personnel and strengthening the infrastructure available to them requires the attention of the State Governments. Funds are not a constraint, as the thirteenth Finance Commission has recommended substantial grants and the Central government continues making its contribution to augment the resources of the states. What is needed is a recognition of this problem, focused attention on these issues and a commitment to improving the professionalism and the quality of our police forces. Ultimately, it is a police man on the ground who will deliver results and he has to be equipped and treated well to have the morale and the capacity to deal with the problems of internal security. I hope to see some useful recommendations emerging out of your deliberations on these issues.

Corruption strikes at the roots of good governance. It is an impediment to faster growth. It dilutes, if not negates, our efforts at social inclusion. It dents our international image and it demeans us before our own people. This is a challenge which has to be faced frontally, boldly and quickly. As you might be aware, we have set up a Group of Ministers to look into all measures, legal or administrative, to tackle this menace. Two bills have already been introduced in Parliament relating to judicial accountability and the protection of whistle blowers. Along with legislation, the necessary revamp of administrative practices and procedures needs to be fast-tracked. A systemic response that reduces opportunities for corruption needs to be put in place. It is now well documented that the introduction of competition, greater choice and modern technology can cut down the opportunities for corruption in a very meaningful manner. Delays, another major cause, can be addressed to a large extent by effective decentralization and delegation of power and responsibility. All these issues require your wholehearted attention and I have no doubt that if all of us work together we can bring about vast improvements in governance.

We should also make full use of technology to improve the delivery of our schemes. Technological advances, including broadband connectivity and mobile phones, provide opportunities and tools for better monitoring, improved communication and greater transparency. Unique identification numbers and the extension of the business correspondence model of commercial banks to remote areas should help in prevention of leakages and promote financial inclusion. These are tools and options at your disposal and it is up to you to use them effectively and imaginatively.

The other area is the administration’s response to the special needs and problems of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, minorities, women and other vulnerable groups of our society. Speaking to Chief Ministers three days ago, I had said that it is a shame that atrocities against Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes still continue in our country. I expect all Chief Secretaries to lead their administration in preventing such atrocities and ensuring punishment to the perpetrators when they do occur. I expect a similar sensitive and responsive attitude towards the issue of violence against our women.

Every terrorist and every terrorist group will be pursued and brought before the law and punished

"We all need to be conscious of the fact that serious challenges and threats -- primarily from left-wing extremism, cross-border terrorism, religious fundamentalism and ethinic violence -- still persist," Singh said in his inaugural address.

He also said he was happy to note that the National Investigative Agency, created in the aftermath of the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, has gained much ground "in unravelling the activities of new terror groups", besides unearthing the fake indian currency networks operating from across borders.

Chidambaram, who was complimented by the PM for better internal security situation, said, "there are a number of modules operating within the country; and new groups have raised their heads that are suspected to be behind some terrorist attacks that took place in recent years".

Stating that one cannot shy away from naming these groups or exposing their designs, the home minister said, "Whatever their religious affiliations, I have no hesitation in condemning every group that resorts to terror as a means of advancing dubious religious causes or fundamentalist goals. Our policy in this regard is clear: every terrorist and every terrorist group will be pursued and brought before the law and punished."

Asked by reporters later as to what he meant by saying "new groups", Chidambaram avoided any elaboration saying, "I have already said in my speech what I had to say".

The PM in his inaugural speech also urged states "to have much greater coordination of responsers and resources between Central and state forces", asking them "to consider increasing the number of joint operations by state police forces" with the assistance of Central forces.

Singh also asked Chidambaram to make Delhi Police a model for other state forces to emulate by taking steps like friendly policing and stressed on the need to have "guidelines" for community policing. 

We are aware that many police commissions have made various recommendations on police reforms. I urge the States to seriously look into this aspect

“We cannot continue to police our society with archaic laws and policing systems. We are aware that many police commissions have made various recommendations on police reforms. I urge the States to seriously look into this aspect,” he said.
“I would like the Ministry of Home Affairs to carry forward this exercise to its logical conclusion in the Union Territory of Delhi during the coming years so that Delhi Police becomes a model for other State police forces to emulate,” Prime Minister said.

“While the central and the State intelligence agencies are at work, we need to recognise a very significant fact that the best, actionable and prompt intelligence on internal security often comes from the police stations.
“But people will come forth to give information to the local policeman, only when they see him as a friend. We need to closely examine the functioning of police stations and bring forth changes to make policemen truly people friendly,” he said while inaugurating Chief Minister’s conference on internal security here.
The Prime Minister said, “We need to take three pronged action on community policing, police reforms and informed use of technology respectively to make this happen.”

He asked the Centre and the states to work together to formulate guidelines for community policing.
“Bridging the gap of mistrust that exists between the police and community will go a long way in collecting actionable intelligence. This also brings me to the idea of involving the academia and professionals, who are experts in the field of data mining and cyber security, in policing,” Dr. Singh added.
