Notably, CMO Dr. Poonam Chaudhary (Commandant) inspired the officers for this program by spreading awareness about organ donation. It has been stated that she would inform and motivate the entire force in the future.
"no service to humankind better than this"
According to Shri Shashi Prakash Singh, "Making a sacrifice is an epitome of our force and over the years our soldiers have laid down their lives to protect the nation. One cannot make a sacrifice after death, but the organs can certainly be useful to someone in need, and there can be no service to humankind better than this." Thereby, it was resolved that at least 75 members of the force would take the plegde, in order to marks 75 years of freedom.
Extending the span of their altruistic service, the CRPF officials have committed to contribute even after their life ends. While the officials have redefined the standards of service, they have also become inspiring examples for others, to follow suit.
