Imphal, July 27:

Group Centre CRPF Imphal, and all CRPF Battalions under the aegis of IGP  Manipur and Nagaland sector, today celebrated CRPF raising day.
CRPF celebrates its raising day on July 27 every year . It is an effort to create awareness about CRPF and to inspire people about patriotism. The Force came into existence as the Crown Representative’s Police on this day in 1939. CRPF was raised as a sequel to the political unrest and the agitations in the then princely States of India following the Madras Resolution of the All-India Congress Committee in 1936 and the ever-growing desire of the Crown Representative to help the vast majority of the native States to preserve law and order as a part of the imperial policy.It became the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on the enactment of the CRPF Act on December 28, 1949. The Force has grown into a mammoth organization with 246 battalions, (including 204 executive Bns, 6 Mahila Bns, 15 RAF Bns, 10 CoBRA Bns, 5 Signal Bns and 1 Special Duty Group, 1 Parliament Duty Group). Each battalion is commanded by an officer designated as Commandant, and consists of seven CRPF companies, each containing 135 men. The Mission of the CRPF is to enable the government to maintain rule of law, public order and internal security effectively, efficiently and to preserve national integrity by upholding supremacy of the Constitution. The CRPF is the leading force in dealing with militancy in Jammu and Kashmir, fighting the Left –Wing Extremism and insurgency in Northeast.
Randeep Datta(PMG), IGP, M&N Sector on this occasion paid homage to the martyrs who laid down their lives while performing their duties. In his speech he mentioned that during the Chinese aggression of 1962, the Force assisted the Indian Army in Arunachal Pradesh. Eight CRPF personnel were killed in action. In 1965 and 1971 Indo-Pak wars also the Force fought shoulder-to-shoulder with the Indian Army, both on the Western and Eastern borders. He emphasized the importance of the day by mentioning the country’s largest paramilitary force’s commitment and dedication in serving the Nation. He also said that our Nation is extremely proud of CRPF valour and courage.
