Home minister Rajnath Singh on Monday said that India is one of the fastest economies of the world but certain anti-India forces are not able to appreciate these visible economic trends.

"Everyday, 5-6 militants are neutralized in Jammu and Kashmir due to the sustained efforts of the Army, paramilitary forces and other security agencies". I'm confident that NIA will maintain its credibility & professionalism, he added.
