A national de-radicalisation policy need to be formulated by the Centre to deal with the global threat of terrorism and efforts should be made to operationalise National Intelligence Grid (Natgrid), Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh said today.
Addressing the 11th Inter-State Council meeting here, he laid stress on the need for strengthening information-sharing among intelligence agencies and police forces to fight terrorism.
The chief minister suggested that information-sharing in security-related matters and maintaining a common database Natgrid on terrorism were the needs of the hour.
He also advocated formulating a de-radicalisation policy at national level and setting up separate court and laws for cyber crime.
Singh said the district administration should be involved in registration work and distribution of Aadhaar cards in Naxal-affected areas as it will contribute in achieving cent per cent target in remote pockets.
He said that speedy expansion of mobile network and optical fiber cable facilities were necessary for providing grants, services and benefits of government schemes to beneficiaries living in remote areas.
Singh said that 99.98 per cent population in Chhattisgarh benefited from Jan Dhan scheme and 95 per cent population have been issued Aadhaar cards. He said that improvement in percentage of mobile numbers linked to bank accounts was also required and urged the Finance Ministry to issue necessary instruction to banks in this regard.
He said that a positive change has been noticed on the ground in Naxal violence-hit south Bastar after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the region.
