Jayalalithaa with West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee at NCTC meet in New Delhi:
Mamata Banerjee, who is staying at her government-allotted flat located near Ram Manohar Lohia hospital has left for the meeting. Before getting into her car, she told reporters that it wouldn't be right to speak before the meeting.
Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh too expressed his hesitation over the issue. "Giving such powers to an intelligence agency like the NCTC which would be constituted without statutory basis will be against the spirit of the constitution and rule of law. Forcing all the officers of the state governments to comply with NCTC by an executive order will be against the federal structure of the Constitution," is what his statement says.
