A touching and patriotic story has emerged as PM Modi interacted with the team that organized and successfully executed the recently concluded G20 summit in the national capital.
During the G20 summit at Bharat Mandapam, Delhi Police Inspector Suresh Kumar tragically lost his mother to a heart attack. Considering his critical duty of securing the main venue, he prioritised his commitment to the country over his family and continued his responsibilities before eventually returning home.
Emotional cop narrates his story to PM
Inspector Suresh Kumar recounted his experience to PM Modi, mentioning that he was stationed at Bharat Mandapam to secure the bilateral meeting rooms during the Summit. When PM Modi inquired about his Summit experience, Inspector Kumar expressed, "We carried out our duties with immense pride, fully aware of the significance of organising such a monumental event."
However, his tone shifted as he shared a personal and emotional moment. "Sir, I had a very personal experience on September 9th while on duty," Inspector Suresh Kumar said, his voice wavering. He apologized to the PM for his emotions and continued, "During that time, I received news that my mother had been hospitalized due to a heart attack. Sir, I made the difficult decision to continue my duty despite the emotional turmoil. One part of my heart urged me to be with my mother, while the other insisted that I must uphold the honor of our nation by fulfilling my duty."

These are moments which shake you. September 9 was the first day of Summit, a very important day, and handing duty to someone else was also not possible. So, you handled everything well and I thank you for that. You gave priority to the nation's need and kept yourself dedicated to the duty despite such a big tragedy. May god give you a lot of power."
