Intensify vigil, says Venkaiah

Staff Reporter

MADURAI: Bharatiya Janata Party vice-president Venkaiah Naidu has urged the Centre to intensify vigil and act against anti-national organisations.

He told reporters here on Sunday that the Intelligence network should be strengthened to thwart the attempts of nefarious and anti-national elements out to destabilise the nation. It was of paramount importance to rein in such forces because, "when there is tension there can be no attention to developmental activities."

He criticised the Railway Board for announcing a 50 per cent hike in freight charges and sought its withdrawal. It would have a cascading effect on the prices of essential commodities and affect the common man. Mr. Naidu wanted the Government to improve the disaster management system. There was an urgent need for introducing a course in disaster management. All rivers, lakes, and ponds should be desilted, he said.
