Praising the anti terrorism agency, NIA (National Investigation Agency) for their work in the Jammu and Kashmir valley on Sunday, Home Minister Rajnath Singh shared the impact of agency's actions saying stone pelting has come down while Naxalism, terrorism and extremism have been diminished.

Speaking at the inauguration of NIA's new office and residential complex in Lucknow, the Union Home Minister said, "You have seen the role of the NIA in Jammu and Kashmir, where incidents of stone-throwing have come down. We have taken the pledge for India's security and strict action is being taken for this. We will accept challenges and in the past three years, incident of naxalism, terrorism and extremism have seen a downward trend."

"We will win over naxalism, terrorism and extremism. In the past three years, extremism has come down by 75 per cent in the northeast and naxalism has come down by 35-40 per cent," he added.

Emphasising on terror funding, as stressed by India at the G20 summit last month, the Home Minister said, "If we plug sources of fake currency and terror funding, it will be a big blow to terrorism. NIA is doing a great job here. Its name sends fear down the spine of those indulging in terror funding."

"Without better coordination, there can be no success. It's a continuous process of sharing information," said the BJP leader responding to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's suggestion of holding meetings with the agency and state units every six months.
