The police officers should be a mix of `Half Steel` and `Half Wax` and they should work towards enhancing their leadership qualities, he added.
The Union Home Minister remarked that the Investiture Ceremony is being held on Sardar Patel`s birth anniversary after a gap of ten years. “It should always be held on Sardar Patel`s jayanti,” he added.
