Bill to declare countries as ‘sponsor of terrorism' withdrawn

NEW DELHI: The Government today disfavoured in the Rajya Sabha passing of any law to declare countries as ‘Sponsor of Terrorism' after which a private member's bill brought with Pakistan in mind was withdrawn.

 

The ‘Declaration of Countries as Sponsor of Terrorism Bill', moved by Independent member Rajeev Chandrashekhar, got support from several members cutting across party lines but the Government said there was no need for such a legislation.

 

The bill provided for declaring any country as State sponsor of terrorism and withdrawing of economic and trade relations with such a country. It also provided for creating legal, economic and travel sanctions for citizens of such a country and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto.

 

After a debate, Minister of State for Home Gangaram Ahir said the Government has taken many steps to deal with terror.

 

“The existing laws already have sufficient provisions for dealing with citizens of a terrorist country,” he said. (AGENCIES)
