New Delhi, Sept 17 (ANI): Prime Minister Dr.Manmohan Singh on Wednesday said that there is no question of the Government being soft on terror.

Addressing the Governors Conference in New Delhi today, Dr. Singh said, Government is actively considering legislation to further strengthen anti-terror law.

Pakistan-based terrorist outfits are constantly trying to set up new modules within the country which is a matter of utmost concern, said Dr Singh.

The Prime Minister further said that while the role of Pakistan-based groups cannot be minimised but the involvement of local elements in the recent blasts adds a new dimension to the terrorist threat.

He suggested better coordination and integration among the existing agencies for devising effective counter-terrorism strategy.

The Prime Ministers statement comes in the wake of the Delhi serial blasts on Saturday and blasts in Jaipur, Bangalore and Ahmedabad earlier this year. (ANI)
