Home Ministry should be re-defined, says Chidambaram

Home minister P Chidambaram has called for total restructuring and laying out a full "new security architecture".

"Jihadi tactics are being copied by other insurgent groups including the Hindu groups", warned Chidambaram.

He said the role of the Home Ministry needs to be re-examined and that it should only deal with internal security issues.

Chidambaram said a National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC), to be set up by 2010, will prevent, contain and respond to terrorism, including violence by any group including Maoists and insurgents.

He stressed on the need to create a full-proof mechanism to track foreigners, while urging better connectivity between police stations to permit coordination and data sharing.

Also on the agenda are Quick Response Teams in every district capital and important towns. 10 years ago
