LUCKNOW: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today advocated establishment of intelligence units in all paramilitary forces, saying it will enhance their competence.

“I feel, not only in SSB, intelligence units should be set up in all the paramilitary forces. It will enhance their work competence and efficiency,” he said.

Addressing a gathering on the occasion of inauguration of SSB’s administrative building here, the Union Home Minister said, “I will try to get such units established and ensure that this work gets completed in this regime (NDA rule).”

SSB chief Archana Ramasundaram requested Singh to set up an intelligence unit in the paramilitary force and get houses for SSB personnel constructed.

The Union Minister said that he will talk to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav about land for construction of houses for the family of SSB personnel.

There are seven Central Armed Police Forces — Assam Rifles (AR), Border Security Force (BSF), Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Indo Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), National Security Guard (NSG) and Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB). (AGENCIES)
