Amit Shah reviews internal security situation in country

Union Home Minister Amit Shah Wednesday chaired a high level meeting of Intelligence Bureau officers from across the country in Delhi and reviewed the internal security situation of the country.
The meeting held extensive discussions on various issues related to national security including counter terrorism, threat from extremism, cyber security, and threats from cross border elements to the integrity and stability of the Nation.
Shah said the Union Government under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi is committed to ensure the security of the nation by strengthening all aspects of security and in the last eight years many important steps have been taken to strengthen the internal security of the country.
Shah said the Intelligence Bureau has made a very important contribution in maintaining peace in the country since Independence, anonymously without any expectations. He said our fight is against terrorism as well as its support system, till we do not fight strictly against both of them, victory over terrorism cannot be achieved.
Shah also stressed on the need to further strengthen the process of information sharing and en-hancing liaison between counter-terrorism and anti-drug agencies of the States. He said there is a need to control Left Wing Extremism by dismantling its the financial and logistical support sys-tem.
The meeting was the first since Tapan Deka took over as Director of the organisation where field officers directly interacted with the Home Minister.
“Border security was discussed at length. Especially anti-drone technology as drone droppings from across the border of arms and drugs have seen a huge rise in the last few months,” a senior Home Ministry official said, requesting not to be named.
According to him, the Home Minister asked officers to concentrate on cracking down on fund-ing for subversive activities and “go after the support system of terrorism”.
