Expressing anguish over terrorist attacks in different parts of the country, Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Saturday cautioned the state governments to ensure that anti-terror measures do not lead to polarisation of society.
She stressed that no community should feel being under siege because of such actions.
Addressing a conclave of Congress chief ministers, she said there should be no compromise on internal security and all states should have fully motivated forces to combat terrorism.
Observing that the terror attacks in different parts of the country were a cause of "serious concern and anguish", she said the anti-terror measures should not lead to polarisation of society and no community should feel being under siege.
The two-day meeting is attended by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, several union ministers, 14 Congress chief ministers, and senior party leaders.
