New Delhi : Union Home and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah on October 14, 2021, laid the foundation of the 3rd Campus of the National Forensic Science University (NFSU) at Dharbandoda, Goa. The Chief Minister of Goa Pramod Sawant, Union Minister Shripad Naik, and Union Home Secretary were present on the occasion.
Shah,in his address, remembering the late Shri Manohar Parrikar, the former Chief Minister of Goa and former Defense Minister of India, said that Parrikar, as the Chief Minister of Goa, began the transformation of the state. Shah said that as the then Defense Minister under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Parrikar achieved two important tasks for which the country will always remember him.
First, under the leadership of PM Modi, Parrikar worked to bring One Rank, One Pension to the three Armed Forces of the country. The soldiers of the Armed Forces spend a large part of their life in the defense of the country in difficult conditions, their sacrifice and austerity were recognised by PM Modi and Parrikar. He said that today the custodians of the borders of the country are fully convinced that the Government of India is caring for their families. Regarding the second task, Shah said that over the years, invaders used to cross the borders of the country and spread militancy and nothing was done except requests being sent by New Delhi. But when there was an attack in Poonch in Jammu &Kashmir and our Jawans were martyred, India, under the leadership of PM Modi and the then Defence Minister Parrikar, conducted a surgical strike for the first time and told the world that tampering with India’s borders is not so easy.He said that for the first time India made an epoch-making beginning by working to protect its borders, gaining respect and establishing the pride of its sovereignty. Shah said that there was an era when there was only talk and then an era came when we replied in the same token, according to a PIB release.
Shah said that the National Forensic Science University (NFSU) was first conceived by the then Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi. Modi worked to begin the first forensic field university in the whole world and when he became the Prime Minister he established the National Forensic Science University. Shah said that our goal is to make forensic science investigation compulsory for all the offenses punishable with more than 6 years. For this, a good team and a district level forensic science laboratory will have to be formed in more than 600 districts of the country. He said that for this, at least 30,000 to 40,000 forensic scientists are needed and education is the only way, so he has worked for the establishment of Forensic Science University.
He urged CM Sawant to make this university popular among the children of Goa and said that so many colleges would be opened under it so that everyone would get jobs. He said that this college is starting today with 200 students and 5 subjects and I want to tell all Goans that their children should accept forensic science education, study and ensure their job. Shah said that the Forensic Science University will not only teach forensic science to children, but also arrange diploma courses for police officers, judicial officers, people related to cyber security and security personnel of private companies.
Shah told the Vice Chancellor of the National Forensic Science University that some diploma courses should also be prepared in Goa on the subject related to tourist places and tourist safety.
