To the new appointees, the Prime Minister talked about the new challenges and responsibilities and asked them to keep the learner alive in them. He asked them to keep working on their personality development, progress and knowledge.
“When you come to this service, you get a ‘Danda’ from the police, but God has given you a heart too. That's why you have to be sensitive and make the system sensitive” the Prime Minister told the new recruits.
