Word like good governance meaningless if people don’t get justice’ : Yogi


) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said that it is important to understand the nature of crime today and what society demands and therefore we need to prepare ourselves accordingly.

He said that the state government has set up the UP State Forensic Science Institute (UPSFSI) and memorandums of understanding (MoUs) were being signed with top forensic institutions to provide the best facilities in them.

While interacting with the students of the first academic session 2023-24 of the UPSFSI at his official residence here, Yogi said, “It’s a matter of joy that the first batch with five courses is starting today.

Along with the Home Department, the people associated with the institute have to establish it as a world class institute.”

On this occasion, he also got introduced to all the teachers and students of the institute. The Chief Minisster informed that new age courses will be introduced and the selection of the best faculty will be ensured at the institute.

He said that in society, words like good governance, democracy become meaningless if people don’t receive justice on time and justice isn’t accessible or affordable. “If the common people lose trust in the constitutional institutions and administrative system, such words become meaningless,” Yogi said.

He emphasised on the need to update the administration as per the needs of the time. “Most cases of cyber crime have been found in Jamtara of Jharkhand and Mehwat near the National Capital. Instead of channelising their energy in a positive direction, people in these areas have turned towards negativity, resulting in the adoption of new and harmful methods in this field,” he said.

While advocating for forensic technology, the Chief Minister said back in 2017 when his government came into power, the rate of cyber crime was on the rise. “We emphasised the need to address this issue seriously at that time and even today we feel the shortage of experts in this field,” he said.

Yogi said, “We believe that there should not only be cyber help desks in every district and police stationa but also experts to support them. The same situation applies to FSL labs as well. There’s a shortage of scientists and technicians. This isn’t just a problem in UP, but across the country,” he said.

The CM asked the students to prepare themselves to cultivate the habit of thinking two steps ahead. “You need to broaden your perspective. If you have the ability to think two steps ahead of anyone challenging anti-social, anti-national, or law and order matters, then you can control it. If you’re two steps behind, it will control you,” he said.

Yogi emphasised on studies and research, stating that they are effective in this field. He mentioned the need for observing the nature of crimes in different districts, states, ranges and zones.

The Chief Minister said, “We need to identify the prevailing patterns of crimes in each area and deploy individuals trained to handle those specific situations. If we approach this as a campaign, the results will be similar to what we have achieved through law and order measures.”

He mentioned that AI and machine learning courses will be introduced in this field and new age courses will be made available. Yogi said that after the initiation of these endeavours, people will realise that these actions should have been taken a long time ago.

The CM said, “We should have considered these matters a decade ago, but better late than never.”

He motivated the students and said that in the coming times, the civil police will have their role. “But nobody will deny the significance of your role alongside theirs. Their role would remain incomplete without you,” he said.

Yogi told the students that their role will be crucial in maintaining the rule of law and good governance and that they should consider themselves fortunate to begin their careers with the first batch of this institution.

He expressed his happiness regarding the number of girls entering the institute, stating that it’s a positive message. “There are plenty of opportunities for them in this field,” he said.

Principal Secretary to the CM Sanjay Prasad, Director General of Police (DGP) Vijay Kumar, Special DG (Law and Order) Prashant Kumar, Director of UPSFSI and ADG Dr GK Goswami and DIG Rajeev Goenka, along with all the faculty members, students and attendees from the institute were present on the occasion.
