Rajnath Singh also called for joint efforts at the international-level to tackle terrorism. "Terrorism is not limited to one country, therefore joint efforts should be made at the international level," he said.
Adding that there are certain forces, who want to "destabilise the peace and tranquility in the country", the home minister said: "Our security forces are fully equipped and capable to deal with terrorists and other anti-national forces". He added that the central government was planning to increase the number of women commandos. Rajnath Singh also paid tributes to the brave NSG commandos who have sacrificed their lives and appreciated the role played by them in countering terrorism.
Admiring the NSG's role in tackling terror, Rajnath Singh said: "NSG has produced such 'Abhimanyus' who are able to tackle any obstacle created by the terrorists. NSG has created its specific identity from its discipline and courageous acts". He said the NSG was established in 1980s when the government was facing internal and external challenges on account of terrorism. "All countries of the world had limited knowledge about the role and shape of terrorism in 1980s. No one had imagined that terrorism will be the biggest enemy of human beings," he said. He said India's rivals were trying to create troublesome environment to hamper the country's progress. "To fight terrorism, I have recently increased the financial help for central forces," he said.
