KOLKATA: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said the Centre should not interfere in the country's federal structure and law and order management system of states in the name of fighting terrorism.

"We want all terrorist movements to be stopped. But in the name of fighting terrorism, do not interfere in the federal structure or the law and order because it is a state subject. It is not nice to bulldoze the federal structure," Banerjee told a press conference here.

She said although Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had said in Parliament that the NCTC issue would be discussed completely, a meeting convened in Delhi on April 16 has listed NCTC as one of the 10 items in the agenda for discussion.

"Let the NCTC issue be discussed freely first before discussing other matters. Ten issues cannot be discussed in one day. Please stick to the NCTC issue. Let it be over, then discuss other issues," she said.

The Centre should give 'full respect' to the chief ministers and allow them to discuss the NCTC issue freely, Banerjee said.
