Its proposal to set up the National Counter Terrorism Council may have evoked sharp opposition,but the government today got support for the move from an unexpected quarter – a key Team Anna member.

Senior lawyer and prominent Team Anna member Prashant Bhushan said he did not find anything wrong in setting up such a centre to fight terrorism.

“There is no harm in having a federal agency like NCTC,” he told PTI when asked about his views on setting up the anti- terror body,which is opposed by several states citing damage to federal structure of the country.

Interestingly,Bhushan was in the forefront along with Anna Hazare in opposing the government’s bill on Lokpal alleging that it was very weak.
