Addressing the IPS probationers, Prime Minister Shri Modi said, “Till now you were a trainee here in a protective environment.

Wherever you are transferred your image will follow.”

Only when filtered things go to your brain, it will help you, sift garbage and keep your heart clean.”

From time to time, maybe on a day off, meet someone like a teacher or someone whose advice you value.”
