New Delhi: The Centre has convened a meeting of Chief Ministers next month to discuss various internal security issues, including controversial NCTC which is stuck due to opposition from non-Congress state governments.
     
The meeting, convened by the Home Ministry and tentatively fixed for April 4, will discuss issues concerning the country’s internal security, activities of various terrorist organizations, militant activities in Jammu and Kashmir and insurgency problems in northeastern states, official sources said today.
     
The conference will specifically deliberate the issue of setting up of the National Counter Terrorism Centre, which is being opposed by Chief Ministers like Mamata Banerjee (West Bengal), Narendra Modi (Gujarat), J Jayalalitha (Tamil Nadu) and Naveen Patnaik.
     
The Centre has already suggested NCTC would be out of the ambit of Intelligence Bureau and it would conduct any search operation or arrest anyone in any state only after informing the state police chief.
