JODHPUR: All India Anti-Terrorist Front (AIATF) chairman Maninderjeet Singh Bitta today praised Prime Minister elect Narendra Modi for being "determined" to address the issue of terrorism and for inviting Pakistan premier Nawaz Sharif for his swearing-in ceremony.

"I am all praise for Modi that he at least expressed determination unlike his predecessor to address the issue of terrorism instead of politicising it," he said.

The former chief of Indian Youth Congress also termed Modi's invitation to Sharif for his oath taking ceremony as a "positive message".

Referring to Jodhpur as a "sensitive town" and "breeding ground" for terror modules being near to the Indo-Pak border, Bitta alleged that neither former Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot nor the security agencies ever took up the issue seriously.

Bitta was here to promote upcoming Bollywood action film 'Holiday' along with actor Akshay Kumar.
