Join hands with cops, police chief saysJuly 20th, 2012 - 6:53 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, July 20 (IANS) Delhi Police Chief Neeraj Kumar urged students Friday to help his force educate children from economically weaker sections.
Speaking at an orientation for new students at Ramjas College in Delhi University, he called upon the students to join the outreach programmes of Delhi Police.
“The programmes will help prepare the children from weaker sections for higher education as well as civil services,” he said.
Kumar also said his force would seek to ensure better safety for disabled students studying in Delhi University.
“The security of the physically challenged, especially the students, is a duty for police as well as the society. We are working on sensitizing our force (on this issue),” Kumar told IANS on the sidelines.
The officer was the guest of Ramjas College principal Rajendra Prasad. The two had studied together at St. Stephen’s College.
In his address, Prasad said that youngsters, especially those in the age group of 20-30, would be the drivers of change in “information revolution”.
He cited the examples of Mark Zuckerburg of Facebook and Jerry Lang of Yahoo who were 18 and 23 when they created their popular websites. He told the students to draw inspiration from such entrepreneurs.
