Union Minister Amit Shah assumed charge of the Ministries of Home and Cooperation on Tuesday.

“Modi 3.0 will take its efforts for India’s security to the next level and build Bharat as a bulwark against terrorism, insurgency, and naxalism,” Mr. Shah later said in a post on X.

Mr. Shah said that under the stewardship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he had “reassumed charge” of the Ministry and that, “MHA will remain committed to the security of the nation and its people, as it always has been”.

Mr. Shah visited the National Police Memorial earlier in the day.

“Remembering the martyrs of our police forces who laid down their lives guarding the honour of the nation and whose saga of sacrifice immortalised the fervour of patriotism forever,” he said.

Mr. Shah held the Home and Cooperation portfolios in the previous Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government at the Centre.

The two-time Member of Parliament from Gujarat has held the Cooperation portfolio since July 2021, when the new Cooperation Ministry was established.

“We laid the foundation for the development of the cooperative sector in the last tenure. We will focus on percolating the policies to the ground level in the next five years,” Mr. Shah posted on X. The Ministry is set to initiate the implementation of a 100-day development plan for the cooperative sector, Mr. Shah said.

“We have done the policy-level work; the focus will be to take it to the grassroots level,” he added.

Sources said that more than 70 initiatives had been shortlisted for the cooperative sector in the next five years, and the focus would be on modernising cooperative banks and primary agricultural credit societies.
