“The nation can only progress if the state govts and the centre work shoulder to shoulder,” he said.

Talking about the internal security, PM said that it was not possible to strengthen it if intelligence exchange was not improved. He also said that it was a matter of joy that the states had collected 21 per cent more funds as compared to last year.
