New Delhi, Dec 23 (ANI): Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said on Wednesday that it is high time the role of the Ministry of Home Affairs is examined.

Chidambaram also proposed the formation of a new Internal Security Ministry, adding that the security of the country seems to be by god's grace at present.

The Home Minister focused on setting up a National Terrorism Counter Center (NTCC), which must be assigned the responsibility of keeping a close eye on terrorist activities.

Chidambaram said, "In my view, the Ministry of Home Affairs will have to be divided. Those issues with no connection with terror should not be with the Home Minister."

The Home Ministry should devote time only to internal security, he added. (ANI)
