PM stresses internal security

Country's internal securiy takes the centrestage of discussion when the DGPs and IGPs are holding a two days conference in Guwahati from Saturday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asked the country’s police force to be smart, alert and accountable. Addressing the DGPs and IGPs, Modi said that the government will strictly deal with anything that can pose threat to the country’s internal security.

He said the two days conference is a great moral booster for the north eastern region where militancy continues to stifle development.

He further said that there is no dearth of weapons for the policemen. But these weapons should be placed in the right hands. Modi said a set of tough measures is required to counter the impending threat in the country’s internal security.

Apart from Union home minister Rajnath Singh and his minister of state Kiren Rijiju, all the north eastern chief ministers also attended the meeting. Modi gave away the President’s police medals towards the fag end of this conference which got underway on Saturday.
