New Delhi: Maoist violence, terror
activities of some right-wing groups and reforms in police
forces will be high on agenda at the Chief Ministers`
conference on internal security to be inaugurated by Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh on February 1.
The meeting is likely to see some fireworks as Gujarat
Chief Minister Narendra Modi and Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj
Singh Chouhan may oppose linking of organisations like VHP and
RSS with terror groups.
The situation in Kashmir, strengthening of intelligence-
sharing mechanism, coastal security and reforms in police
forces will also be discussed at the day-long session.
The Chief Ministers are expected to present their views
on cross-border terrorism, infiltration from across the
border, burgeoning Naxal threat and give directions to the
security forces dealing with these internal security issues.
Activities of Pakistan-based terror groups and the
situation in Jammu and Kashmir and the Northeast, combating of
economic offences, especially fake Indian currency notes, will
also come up at the meeting.
The conference will review action taken on issues
prioritised in the last meeting held in August 2010 which
covered wide-ranging areas of capacity building in the state
police and police reforms.
Assessing information collection system -- both
technical and human intelligence -- its proper sharing and
necessary follow-up action, procurement of arms and
ammunition, filling of vacancies besides providing training to
security forces are also likely to be discussed.
