Indian economy to reach $5 trillion by 2030: Rajnath Singh

Rajnath Singh says ‘anti-India forces’ want to weaken the country’s economy

Complimenting the NIA for its role in curbing terror acts in the country, the home minister said it was a challenging job to gather evidence in terror cases.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh said here on Sunday that India was no more a weak country but a strong one, which was in a position to resolve a contentious matter such as the Doklam standoff with China.

Inaugurating the new headquarters of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) here, Singh said no civilised country can accept the rise of terrorism on its soil.

Addressing the young officers/jawans, Singh said that terrorism was a major threat in many countries today but Prime Minister Narendra Modi had taken up the topic on the world stage and "succeeded" in bringing most countries on board the issue.

The National Investigation Agency's crackdown on flow of funds from the "neighbouring country" to finance unrest in Kashmir has dealt a blow to the morale of terror and separatist groups, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said here Tuesday.

In his address at the function, director general of the NIA Sharad Kumar said since the inception of the organisation in 2009, a total 166 cases have been assigned to the NIA for investigation.

The home minister said terrorism was a major hurdle in the country's development and the Centre had initiated several measures to tackle the menace, including raising it at various global forums. He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had succeeded in bringing global community on board on the issue. Lauding the work of the probe agency for proving its credibility in the last eight-and-half years since its formation in 2008, Singh said the conviction rate of the agency was over 90 per cent. Of these, 63 related to jihadi terror, 25 to terror acts by Northeast militants, 41 were cases of terror funding and counterfeit currency, 13 related to Naxal violence and the remaining 24 linked to miscellaneous terrorist acts or criminal gangs.

"I will live up to your expectations".
