The Chief Minister in his speech said that receiving ‘President’s Colours’ was not only a matter of pride for the state police force but also for the state of Tamil Nadu.

He also called upon the police to ensure that there are no custodial deaths in the state and added that police custodial deaths have come down from 17 in 2018 to four in 2021.
