Home Minister P Chidambaram has said sufficient weapons have been supplied to security forces to contain terrorists and there has been a decline in their activities in recent years.
Security forces are in possession of modern weapons and terrorist activities have been controlled to a large extent, Chidambaram said.
He was speaking after laying the foundation for a Dr Ambedkar Mani Mandapam (memorial for Ambedkar) here last night.
On the indefinite strike by contract workers of state-run Neyveli Lignite Corporation continuing for over a month, Chidambaram told reporters he would hold talks with coal minister Sriprakash Jaiswal and labour minister Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday to find a solution.
The contract workers on strike are demanding regularisation of their services in a phased manner and implementation of 'equal pay for equal work' formula, among other things.
