Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that there is an urgency to reinforce the law dealing with the country’s internal security.
In his address at the Chief Ministers’ conference on internal security convened by the government, Shri Narendra Modi said internal security threatened by organised crime and terrorism needs to be encountered with a strong resolve which should not be limited to physically strengthening the law enforcement mechanism.
'Our policy decisions and laws to deal with such issues should have enough teeth. The biggest issue concerning internal security, to my mind, is lack of adequate legal provisions to support our efforts,' he said.
He said the country should build its inherent strength and institutional mechanisms so that 'we do not have to rely upon external forces for bringing perpetrators of crime against our people within our country to book'.
