New Delhi: Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Wednesday strongly supported the creation of the proposed National Counter Terrorism Center (NCTC) saying that the Maoist attack in Chhattisgarh recently had demonstrated the nefarious designs of terrorists.

Speaking at the Conference of Chief Ministers on internal security, Hooda said the issue needed urgent attention and added that the revised draft of the Home Ministry had taken care of the states' concerns on NCTC.

"The revised draft of MHA, which has been circulated with the agenda notes, takes care of the concerns and the apprehensions of the states. Rather, the states have been envisaged as equal functional partners in this battle against terrorism of all types," he added.

Hooda said that cooperation and coordination between the Centre and states is needed to address the problems of internal security. The Haryana CM also gave details of the initiatives taken by his government to strengthen the security scenario in his state.
