Guwahati, May 23 (UNI) Minister of State for Defence M M Palam Raju today admitted that infiltration from neighbouring Bangladesh was posing a threat to the internal security of the country.
''Infiltration by anti-national elements from the Bangladesh side is creating a threat to our country. The recent Jaipur and Hyderabad blasts are fall-outs of this infiltration,''he said.
Mr Raju was in the city to inaugurate a Defence Pension Adalat at the Narnegi Military Station here.
He stressed on the need to strengthening the intelligence agencies to fight this threat, adding that incomplete border fencing due to difficult terrain along the Indo-Bangla border was abetting infiltration.
He, however, asserted that the country was well equipped to face any possible situation.
