Jaipur, Jan 29 (UNI) Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil expressed satisfaction over prevailing cooperation and understanding between the Centre and states and said the idea of investigation by the Centre in crimes and incidents involving more than one state, has been dropped in the want of national consensus.

Speaking during inaugural session at the 38th All India Police Congress here today, Mr Patil said an idea for holding criminal investigation and handling by the Centre in such situations was mooted in certain quarters and the same was considered by the government.

However, some states had expressed their views against the idea and the move had been dropped, Mr Patil said.

He said the Centre wanted to ensure due cooperation and mutual understanding between the Centre and states over the security related issues.

The Home Minister said that despite different political parties ruling in states, presently there was no problem between the Centre and any of the states and due cooperation and mutual understanding was prevailing over the security related issues.
