Nothing to oppose in counter-terrorism centre now: Shinde

PTI New Delhi | Updated on March 12, 2018

Conceding the demands of non-Congress Chief Ministers, the Centre has diluted the much touted NCTC with Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde exuding confidence that the anti-terror hub would see the light of day during the Chief Ministers’ conference here next month.

Shinde said all apprehensions of the opposing Chief Ministers have been allayed as the “operations” part has been taken out from the body.

“There is nothing to oppose in the NCTC now. The operations part (of the NCTC) has been taken out. I am hopeful that the NCTC will be approved during the CMs’ conference,” Shinde told PTI.

The local police will make the arrests in any case and hence the State Government would be involved with the NCTC, he said.

The establishment of the body would be discussed during the April 15 internal security meeting of the Chief Ministers.

The setting up of the National Counter Terrorism Centre is being opposed by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee (West Bengal), Narendra Modi (Gujarat), J. Jayalalithaa (Tamil Nadu) and Naveen Patnaik (Odisha).
