Speaking on the sidelines after inaugurating the NIA's new headquarters here, Mr Singh also claimed that no country would accept the rise of terrorism on its soil. Union home minister Rajnath Singh said on Tuesday that the "morale of terror groups as well as separatists has been hit hard ever since the crackdown against the flow of funds from neighbouring countries was launched".

Blaming the opposition Congress for blocking the bill for granting Constitutional status to the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC), Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said that the Modi government will not refrain from according constitutional status.

The process to sanitise the Kashmir Valley of terror elements has been catalysed, the Home Minister said, adding, "Everyday, the forces are successful in killing 5-6 terrorists".

Rajnath Singh said investigating terrorist activities was a tough job.
