Here’s what the guests said-

As the Chief Guest, I extend my warm greetings to all ACPs, inspectors, SHOs, and distinguished guests from various societies. I congratulate everyone for their forward-thinking approach and unity in the face of diverse challenges. I appreciate the significant efforts put into conducting the security audit, reminiscing about the decision made in 2018 under the leadership of Anto Alphonse, the then DCP of Dwarka and ACP, Rajender Singh, to initiate such an audit with Federation of CGHS Dwarka. I express my delight at the resumption of this initiative by Ankit. One must realise the importance of ongoing vigilance and adaptation in security measures, and it is a continuous process rather than a one-time endeavor. I encourage the promotion of this audit as a platform for healthy competition among societies, emphasizing the need for regular checks on security systems and staying updated with technological advancements. Additionally, I emphasise the significance of cyber security awareness and suggest the reinstatement of night patrolling."

I congratulate and appreciate all RWAs and MCs for their enthusiasm. With around 300 residents within each society, it's akin to a small village, highlighting the sense of community and coordination among the residents, which I found commendable. I observed that despite being perceived as societies with low security consciousness, the people have proven me wrong by actively taking steps towards enhancing security within their societies. In conclusion, I appreciate the proactive approach of residents in prioritizing security for themselves and their societies.

“This program was initially planned earlier but was delayed slightly due to the farmers' protest. However, a timeline has been set to continue this practice for future endeavors, ensuring that all technological advancements are integrated smoothly. Dwarka subdivision comprises 352 societies, with presidents in attendance, along with several prominent associations and groups. These entities not only address society-specific issues but also actively participate in social activities to contribute to the welfare of Dwarka as a whole. I have been attending numerous functions recently, including events like cycle distributions for underprivileged children by the Rotary Club of Delhi Govinda, showcasing the active involvement of Dwarka residents in community initiatives. The purpose of this security audit is not just about prevention but also about ensuring the well-being of residents. I emphasis the importance of staying updated with technological upgrades and thank everyone for their efforts in crime prevention. I have noted a significant decrease in street crimes, attributing it to collective efforts.”
Ankit Kumar Singh, IPS

I express gratitude to all participants for their active involvement and emphasise the importance of ongoing efforts to ensure community safety. It is heartening to see so many participants with renewed commitments towards building a safer and more resilient Dwarka.
