Pak Instigating Indian Youth, Funds Terror, Says Rajnath Singh
Home Minister, Rajnath Singh, while speaking on security issues at the annual DGP and IGP meet held outside the national capital stressed upon the continued existence of terrorist infrastructure in Pakistan. This included launch pads, training camps and communication stations in the country. He further asserted that Pakistan was undertaking all efforts possible for instigating the J&K youth against India.
Pakistan was stoking anti-India sentiment in J&K, which was disrupting the law and order situation and felt the need for appointing a representative to initiate a dialogue there. At the same time, he lauded the efforts of the security forces for ably handling the situation in the State. Communal violence in the country had increased slightly and he emphasized upon the top police brass to resort to strong action during the occurrence of such incidents.
As for the north-east there was a fall in insurgency, however, Singh was still concerned about the existence of hideouts and camps of underground outfits in Myanmar. There was a considerable reduction in the Naxalite violence and he declared that surrender policy for the Naxalites would be promoted in the following days.
He alerted the police officers on the rising cyber-crime and told them to be watchful of the use of social media and internet by anti-social elements.
Three police stations in the country were awarded by Rajnath Singh as per a tweet from the Home Minister’s Office. They included Panjagutta Police Station (Hyderabad), RS Puram Police Station (Coimbatore City) and Gudamba Police Station (Lucknow).
The annual conference of DGP and IGPs is being held since it was started by the Narendra Modi led government in 2014. The venue for previous three conferences was Guwahati, Hyderabad and Rann of Kutch. The conference would be addressed by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, tomorrow.
