MoS Home Kiren Rijiju addresses the 48th CISF Day parade

The minister of state for home affairs, Kiren Rijiju has commended the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) for its diverse role in securing vital installations and national assets. Addressing the 48th CISF Day parade in Ghaziabad on March 10, Rijiju said the CISF contingent deployed under the UN Flag helped to conduct peaceful Presidential elections in Afar Haiti during November 2016. The CISF is also deployed at the Indian embassy in Kathmandu, he said.

From a modest beginning in 1969, Rijiju said, the CISF today secures government buildings and provides security to most high risk installations such as the airports, harbours, atomic power plants and space research facilities. He said that providing foolproof security to Delhi Metro, which records a ridership of more than 30 lakh passengers every day, for a decade, is a big achievement. The CISF is also providing security to 78 VVIPs presently, he added. Rijiju also congratulated the force personnel for bagging the Best Marching Contingent Trophy during this year’s Republic Day Parade.

In his address, Director General, CISF, OP Singh, said the CISF security at many Indian airports has been adjudged among best in the world by the Brussels based Airport Council International.

On the occasion, Rijiju presented medals to the CISF personnel. He reviewed the Parade and took salute of the March Past.
