Manmohan singh needs a new hobby and he needs to find it soon
because the people are tired of the same
old oft repeated dialogues.
This guy is worse than a stuck record.
Little is he aware about his own economic policies that terrorise
Indians across the land and are thought up by the IMF and World bank
and implemented by Chidambaram and Montek Singh Ahluwalia.
Ultras now more sophisticated: PM
Hyderabad, Oct 26: Terming terrorism as the most dangerous threat to the country, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today said there was an "external dimension" to the internal threat and called upon the police to gear up to meet the new challenges.
"There are subversive forces at work. Economic globalisation and technological development have altered the nature of crime, giving rise to new forms of criminality," he said after reviewing the passing out parade of the 58th batch of IPS probationers at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy on the outskirts of the city.
Calling for improved coordination among the states and the use of best technologies to face the multitude of dangers, Singh said, "Today's terrorists are most sophisticated having transnational linkages and adequate resources. Both knowledge and determination are required if we are to succeed against these elements."
The most dangerous threat to the country, he said, was terrorism.
"From an occasional footnote, it has become a hydra-headed monster. There are several strains of terrorism present and you will need to keep abreast of developments in this regard," the Prime Minister told the young officers.
Referring to the situation in the northeast, Jammu and Kashmir and naxal-hit states, he said that the problems in each of these regions were different and a skillful approach was needed to tackle them.
"All this will demand sensitive handling. Understand reasons for disaffection and alienation and you will find some answer to your challenges," he told the officers.
78 IPS probationers, including eight women, participated in the parade as a culmination of 45-week long training at the academy.
Four officers from the Royal Bhutan Police and three from Maldives Police also passed out today.
It was after a gap of 21 years that the passing out parade was reviewed by a Prime Minister. The earlier occasion was when late Rajiv Gandhi reviewed the parade in 1985.
Pointing out how the nature of crime and violence in the society had undergone changes, Singh said sophisticated instrumentalities were now available to criminals.
"This requires knowledge of new disciplines and new ways of tackling such crime. Only a deep understanding of the complexities of forces shaping our polity will enable you to handle your work in an efficient manner," he told the police officers.
Referring to the internal security challenges, Singh said, "We face not one single over-arching threat but a multitude of dangers. Problems are not confined to one state alone and often encompass several states. This requires not just improved coordination between states but also new modes of cooperation requiring the best use of technologies."
Union Ministers Shivraj Patil and S Jaipal Reddy, Andhra Pradesh Governor Rameshwar Thakur, Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, state Home Minister K Jana Reddy and Director of the Academy Kamal Kumar were also present on the occasion.
