Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will meet and address chief ministers on drought, price rise and internal security in New Delhi on Monday.

Singh while addressing the concerns with all state chief ministers on the lack of rainfall and the spectre of drought will also ask them to help the Centre formulate a concrete course of action.

While drought-like situation in many states will be the prime focus of the meeting, the rising terror incidents and the threat of Naxalism looming large across many states has ensured that internal security has become the biggest worry for the Government.

Threadbare discussions will be held with the chief ministers on the security situation and measures to be adopted to maintain law and order, coastal security, strengthening of intelligence wing, augmenting police forces and preparedness of Quick Reaction Teams, Home Ministry sources said.
