Rise above everything & withhold spirit, Doval tells IPS trainees

Hyderabad: National security adviser Ajit K Doval here on Saturday exhorted IPS officer trainees to rise above everything and withhold the everlasting spirit.
Ajit K Doval was the chief guest at the Passing-Out Parade of the 67 RR (2014 Batch) of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy. He called upon the IPS officer trainees to brand themselves as they are entering into a great future and live up to their vision and destination. “There may be conflict of interests, conflict of values, reality and perceptions while you are discharging duties. But you have to rise above everything”, he told IPS trainees.
Narrating how the war had changed its complexes, Doval observed, “Now it is a war of a policeman, as civil society is mostly affected. If you win, the country wins. Many countries are collapsing with internal security problems. Only police can fight and win the battle”. He also reminded the IPS officer trainees about Lord Buddha’s last saying on death-bed that ‘Aatma Deepobhava’ must be practised and asked them to light their own path.
Complimenting the IPS officer trainees, Doyal recalled 47 years ago, he also passed out in this Police Academy. He specially congratulated all awardees and hailed services of NPA Director Aruna Bahuguna for improving the facilities. He also patted faculty for their hard work in grooming the IPS officers. “This is a special day as the Nation is observing the birth anniversary of country’s “Iron Man” Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and this is also the day our young and energetic IPS Officer Trainees are passing out.”
Academy Director Aruna Bahuguna said the IPS officer trainees will face a different world for the bulk of their careers than they see today. In all likelihood, during the course of their careers, India would become one of the world’s largest economies and a military super power, she said, adding that the NPA needs to prepare the police officers of tomorrow. “All the classroom knowledge in the world will not work if not applied in the real world context”, she observed.
Doval presented trophies to meritorious IPS officer trainees. In all, 156 trainees, including 28 women, six from the Royal Bhutan Police Service, four from the Maldives Police Service and five from Nepal Police Service completed 46-week of Phase I rigorous training. (NSS)
