Dr Manmohan Singh emphasized the need for utmost vigilance in view of the credible information that terrorists in Pakistan would carry out fresh attacks in India.
The PM said the area of operation of terrorists today extended far beyond the confines of Jammu and Kashmir and covers all parts of the country. He was addressing a conference of the chief ministers on internal security.
Dr Singh said the situation in Jammu & Kashmir during past few years had seen a substantial improvement with figures of violence steadily declining and touching an all time low.
The union home minister P Chidambaram said that the gravity of the terror threat remains undiminished and the country cannot lower its guard.
