Home Minister P Chidambaram on Tuesday got a compliment from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for the efforts being taken to improve the internal security situation in the country.
Addressing the Directors General and Inspector Generals of Police, Singh said during the past year "we have achieved some major successes" with regard to terrorism.
"I would like to compliment the Home Minister and his team for the efforts made in the last many months to improve our internal security," Singh said.
He said many terrorist modules have been dismantled and arrests of several important terrorists have taken place.
"It is on account of your alertness that we have not had a serious terrorist attack since November last year," he said in his address.
He also complimented the Police, Intelligence Agencies and the Security Forces for their contribution to the free and fair conduct of the recent General Elections.
"The relative peace that prevailed both during and before the polls was in large measure a result of your efforts. You deserve the country’s thanks for this performance," he said.
Chidambaram was made the Home Minister within days of 26/11 terror attack.
