Addressing the Conference, the Home Minister commended the efforts of the Police Forces of the States, UTs and Centre for all round improvement in the internal security situation in the country, be it insurgency in the North-East, Naxal activities, or the situation in J&K, where attempts to incite secession and law and order problems were made from our neighbourhood.

He acknowledged the relentless efforts of Police forces of the States and Centre in handling these. He also lauded the coordinated efforts of Central and State intelligence for not letting ISIS indoctrinated youth in committing any act of terror in the country.
