Public participation and a sustained campaign to counter terrorism.President tells nation
15 Aug, 2006
NEW DELHI: In the backdrop of escalating terror attacks in the country, President A P J Abdul Kalam called upon public participation and a sustained campaign to counter terrorism. 

In his Independence Day eve speech, Kalam said that to fight terrorism it was important to transcend differences and asked for "political, administrative, scientific and industrial communities to cooperate intensely with each other." 

He also suggested that the government frame a "Citizens' Security Bill". Kalam, who had "national awakening" as the theme of his 14-page address, said, "The constant threats of low intensity proxy war and terrorism have become a disturbing feature of national life. 

"This constitutes the new face of war. It has been recognised that terrorism does not take place without any planning. This may be originating from a master plan with global umbilical connectivity extending to homes or hotels and guest houses." 

The president said states could consider introduction of national identity cards and implement the national e-governance grid for all government to government, government to citizens, business to business and business to citizen transactions within two years time. 

Emphasising that accelerated development has to be integrated with peace missions, he said the economic security of border regions would itself become complementary to territorial security required in these zones. 

Delivering what could be his last I-Day speech, Kalam steered clear of any constitutional references or the Office-of-Profit Bill
