Speaking on the occasion, chief guest Shri Rakesh Asthana hailed “Unnati” as an effective initiative to strengthen the chord of togetherness with society. The CP, Delhi emphasised that every year over 1.5 lakhs persons are arrested by Delhi Police for various crimes and more than 85 percent of the arrested persons are first timers, while only 10-15% are repeat offenders. Community policing initiatives like YUVA & Unnati target that these 85% do not fall in the web of crime and they get a chance to take a fresh shot at life and join the mainstream as builders of society.

The CP Delhi Delhi felicitated YUVA trainees who have got jobs and are supporting their family livelihood. He said he had gone through the profiles of YUVA trainees felicitated today and he was deeply touched by their dedication to overcome the odds which were against them. Although police work is about containing and solving crime, however at any given moment a policeman is providing selfless service to general public especially from weaker sections of society. He also urged the mediapersons to cover social and community services provided Delhi Police. He advised the youngsters among the audience to stay away from drugs, which are root cause of most crimes. This Unnati scheme would be replicated in other districts of Delhi under PPP model and with the help of YUVA stakeholders, Shri Asthana said.
