Rajasthan to have anti-terror force: Raje
Jaipur (PTI): Against the backdrop of serial blasts here, the Rajasthan government on Thursday said it would set up its anti-terror force and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to convene a meeting of all Chief Ministers on internal security.
Addressing a press conference, Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje also proposed a task force on intelligence gathering, investigation, coordination to acquire probe component and dissemination of information to the states.
Exchange of information among the states and with the Centre was absolutely vital on such crucial issue to reach to a conclusion, she said.
Though every agency at the Centre was functioning in its own style there should be an inter-connectivity between every agency whether IB, NSG or the state crime branch, Raje said.
Recalling the Girish Chandra Commission recommendations on tackling terror, she said its recommendations were yet to be implemented as there was a shortage of sleuths in the IB.
The Commission had suggested the setting up of a data bank but it was hanging fire, Raje said.
Reiterating a need for re-induction of POTA, Raje said Rajasthan would set up its own anti-terroist force and prepare a roadmap to deal with such exigency.
States like Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, and Madhya Pradesh would be soon invited to take part in a course study and prepare a model plan, she said, adding, former supercop K P S Gill would also be involved in a big way.
