In yet another effort to ensure consistency among diverse forces, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday suggested the notion of “One Nation, One Uniform” for the police. He emphasised that it was “only a notion” and not an order, asking the states to consider it as merely a proposal.

“For the police, “One Nation, One Uniform” is merely a notion. I’m not attempting to force it upon you. Just think about it. It might occur in five, fifty, or one hundred years. But let’s think about it, “added PM Modi.

Speaking to a “Chintan Shivir” of state home ministers, the prime minister expressed his belief that all of the nation’s police officers might have the same appearance.In order to combat crime and criminals, PM Modi also favoured close cooperation among the states.

He also supported the plea for a unified approach to law and order made by Union Home Minister Amit Shah. The job of the states and the federal government was to promote cooperative federalism, he continued.

According to the Constitution, law and order are a state responsibility, but the PM argued that they are also connected to the nation’s integrity and unity.He said that for the sake of internal security, every state should collaborate, learn from, and be inspired by one another.

According to him, states have a constitutional obligation and national responsibility to cooperate for internal security. Also, all organisations, both federal and state, should work together to ensure effectiveness, better results, and protection for the average person.

People need to be made aware of ways to double-check texts before sending them, he said.Police and intelligence services should work together, according to the PM, to ensure effectiveness, better results, and protection for the average person.He claimed that in order to get better outcomes, the police and security forces should reinforce their venerable method of gathering human intelligence.PM Modi urged the states to choose their technology without considering the budget since “investing in today’s technology is a saving in the future.”

The idea of having a single uniform for the whole police force did not take off with different police forces, who believe that the distinction is necessary to distinguish one force from another.

A senior DG ranking officer said, “There is so much difference in our country, the North East has a colder environment, Rajasthan is hot in the South, we have humidity, how can we have the same uniform for all, and furthermore, one can identify a uniform with a force thus it’s a pointless exercise.”
