Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday greeted the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) on its 52nd Raising Day and said that the role of personnel of the force in furthering national safety and progress was deeply valued.

In one of his Twitter posts, the Prime Minister also shared his speech from the 50th Raising Day ceremony of CISF at Ghaziabad, on March 10, 2019.

“On their Raising Day, greetings to the courageous CISF personnel and their families. Their role in furthering national safety and progress is deeply valued. In 2019, I had attended the Raising Day celebrations of CISF. Here is what I had spoken then,” Modi said in the tweet.

Extending his greetings to CISF personnel, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said CISF plays a key role in the country’s growth from shielding India’s vital establishments to serving the nation during disasters.

“Raising day greetings to our brave CISF personnel and their families. From shielding India’s vital establishments to serving the nation during disasters, CISF plays a key role in the country’s growth. Nation salutes the devotion and sacrifice of our courageous force,” Shah said in a Twitter post.

As the chief guest at the main function here at the force’s camp in Ghaziabad, Union Home Secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla said, “CISF is the only force that is deployed in a huge number at airports, Delhi Metro, and at major tourist spots and comes in contact with citizens. There’s criticism wherever there is public dealing. We get negligible complaints, that too because of vested interest.”

CISF was set up under the act of the Parliament of India on March 10, 1969. Since then CISF Raising Day has been celebrated on March 10 each year.
