'States to have cooperation modes to tackle terror'
Hyderabad, Oct 26: Attaching more importance to internal security threats than external aggression in the context of the "hydra-headed terror monster", Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today exhorted states to adopt new modes of cooperation using the latest technology and management skills to tackle the challenges.
''Problems are not confined to one state alone and often encompass several states. This requires not just improved coordination between states, but also new modes of cooperation requiring use of best technologies that are available,'' he stressed while addressing the 58th batch of IPS probationers.
Terming terrorism the ''most dangerous threat'' facing the country, he said, ''from an occasional footnote, it has become a hydra-headed monster''.
