NCTC row: BJP demands Inter-State Council meet

  • Alleging that the NCTC is not on the lines promised by the UPA government in the wake of 26/11, the BJP demanded that a meeting of the Inter-State Council be called to discuss the matter instead of forming it through an executive order. 
  • The opposition party also asserted that since law and order is a state subject, the government should keep the states in the loop in the functioning of NCTC. Not doing so- as envisaged in the proposed NCTC- is a breach of the federal structure, it alleged. 
  • Seven Chief Ministers, including West Bengal's Mamta Banerjee and her Tamil Nadu counterpart J Jayalalithaa, have opposed NCTC on the grounds that it is against federalism. 
  • The BJP demanded that a meeting of the Inter-State Council be called to discuss this matter immediately. 
  • The opposition accused the UPA of playing votebank politics by arrogating powers to itself without any concern for the states.
