New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh met the heads of para-military and security agencies on Monday and sought a roadmap on internal security.

Singh asked the security heads to keep in mind development aspect while preparing roadmap for strengthening internal security.

Rajnath Singh, under whose stewardship BJP has stormed to power with its highest-ever tally, had taken charge as the Union Home Minister on May 29, three days after he was sworn-in as a member of the Union Cabinet under Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The 62-year-old Singh succeeded Sushilkumar Shinde in the crucial ministry that handles the country`s internal security and the task of guarding its international borders with Pakistan, China, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan.

Immediately after taking charge, Singh had asked his officials to come up with out of the box ideas for internal security and better coordination between the Centre and states.
Directing his Ministry to prepare an actionable blueprint, he said this should also contain ideas to resolve border disputes with neighbouring countries without compromising national interests, official sources said.
