New Delhi :  

National Investigative Agency (NIA) and state security agencies should meet every six months for effective coordination and better exchange of information, said Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday.

The Uttar Pradesh CM asked the agencies to meet in regular intervals during the inauguration function of NIA's regional office and residential campus in Lucknow. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh was also present during the innaugration program. 

“We are ready to help at all levels on issues related to national security,” said the Adityanath.

Uttar Pradesh chief minister also said, “Our country had been at the receiving end of terrorism for long. But now, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a befitting reply is being given to perpetrators of terrorism".

He added that the investigative agency has solved several cases pertaining to terror activities.

Adding further he said, “NIA is here and now we will succeed in breaking the backbone of terrorism.”

He further added that his major concern was Gorakhpur because of its open border (with Nepal).

“Terrorists have been misusing the open borders to bring in fake currency to the country for terror activities,” he said.

The Uttar Chief minister further added that he was working to make the state Anti-terrorist Squad (ATS) modern.

“We are strengthening our ATS and very soon they will be equipped with modern techniques,” added Adityanath.
