He dealt with the insurgents in Nagaland, tackled the ULFA (United Liberation Front of Assam) rebels in Assam, fought against terrorism in Punjab and contributed to combating militancy in Jammu & Kashmir. The Government of India, in recognition of his contribution to national security, awarded him the 'Padmashri' in 1991.

Piyush has set up the debate to honor his father's achievements and provide an opportunity to the freshly recruited officers of the various All India and Central Services to show their oratorical skills.
