Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said India will have to find a permanent solution for terrorism and militancy. “We (Narendra Modi government) have started working in that direction,” Singh said while addressing a gathering at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy in Hyderabad. Singh said that the world is faced with many challenges pertaining to security which includes terrorism, cyber terrorism and radicalisation. Singh also slammed dreaded terrorist organisations like ISIS and Al-Qaeda for killing innocents. Singh sadi that threats to use nuclear weapons were being given out and there are cyber attacks and fake news. Singh also announced that Ministry of Home Affairs will provide an amount of Rs 5 crore to police academy’s welfare society.
He said the next five years would be crucial for security forces in resolving challenges related to terrorism and communalism, especially in Jammu and Kashmir, the northeast and left wing extremism-affected areas of the country.
“Today, the world is engulfed by the fear of terrorism and radicalisation. Outfits such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda are killing innocent people across the globe and there is a threat from nuclear arms. People are facing the issues of cyber attacks. These organisations are continuously coming out with newer ideas,” the home minister said.
“India is not isolated from these developments. One of our neighbouring country is constantly engaged in encouraging terrorists… We should take a vow to eradicate problems like terrorism, extremism and fundamentalism in the next five years,” Singh said.
He said the government has registered certain gains against terrorism and left wing extremism in the recent times and there is a need to maintain that momentum.
The Centre has recently allocated Rs 25,000 crore for modernisation of police forces in the country, Singh said.
He advised the cadets to follow four principles — hard work, honesty, positive attitude and judicious decision — in their career.
The home minister also announced a grant of Rs 5 crore to the NPA Welfare Society.
As many as 136 probationers, including 14 from other countries, graduated from the academy today after undergoing training for 45 weeks.
