NCTC will work as combined efforts to curb terrorism: PM

Making a strong pitch for formation of an anti-terror hub, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday said the establishment of NCTC is not a State versus Centre issue but will work as a vehicle of country’s combined efforts to curb terrorism. Stressing that NCTC will supplement the counter-terrorism capabilities of the states and not supplant them, Singh asked the state governments to work with the Centre in dealing with terrorism.

“Terrorism is today one of the most potent threats to our national security. There can be no disagreement on putting an effective counter terrorism regime with efficient mechanism and response systems both at the national level and at the state level,” the Prime Minister said in his inaugural speech at a conference of chief ministers called to discuss NCTC.

The meeting was called specially after 12 chief ministers opposed formation of NCTC. Read More about NCTC Meeting
