Blaming the opposition Congress for blocking the bill for granting Constitutional status to the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC), Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said that the Modi government will not refrain from according constitutional status.

The Minister said being an autonomous body, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) had done its job well in its crackdown on terrorists and separatists. He also termed terrorism as a "curse" that no civilised country can accept. He hailed the NIA's role in curbing the menace of fake currency which he said acted as oxygen for terrorism.

The NIA, over the past two months, arrested ten influential separatist leaders and businessmen from the Valley, for their alleged role in the procurement of funds from Pakistan.

Describing terrorism as a hurdle to development, he said the NDA government had taken several steps to tackle the problem, including highlighting the issue in worldwide forums. The first case was assigned to NIA in June, 2009 and by the end of July, 2017, a total 166 cases have been assigned to the NIA for investigation.

The NIA investigations have resulted into 95 % conviction rate. He said terrorism acted as a hindrance to development. He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had succeeded in bringing worldwide community on board on the issue.
