the prime minister - the minister of India Manmohan Singh has informed yesterday at meeting of heads of the country that the government intends to accept the drastic measures for increase of efficiency of struggle against terrorists.

Since 2005 in cities of India victims of explosions of bombs became more than 400 persons. Among the reasons of growth of terrorism mister Singh has noted “ serious blanks “ in information gathering on terrorists. For terrorism bridling the Indian government suggests to increase number of policemen in Delhi by 7 thousand persons, to establish tracking cameras in the most brisk places of capital and to create research department of investigation. But the most important thing as the prime minister - the minister late at night on Wednesday has declared, the government of India counts that the parliament will toughen the laws directed on struggle against offences. These measures become the answer not only to a call thrown to the Indian authorities by terrorists, but also to criticism from the opposition accusing government Manmohana of Singh in “ weaknesses “ and inability to bridle criminality. In particular, the opposition reproaches the authorities with cancellation in 2004 of the Certificate about prevention of terrorism as which the present government considers “ draconian “ and striking the rights of Moslems. Without wishing to restore the certificate, the government of mister Singh nevertheless intends to give to law enforcement bodies new stronger legal tools for fight against terrorism. AFP
