New Delhi, Apr 16 (ANI): Slamming the Central Government in the recent controversies with the army, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that tensions between the civil and military wings are bound to adversely impact the internal security of the country.

"The internal security of the country cannot be viewed in isolation as it is intertwined with the external security scenario and the armed forces play an important role in anti-infiltration and anti-insurgency which directly impinges on the internal security of the nation," he added.
Asserting that there should be a trust between the Centre and the state governments on security, Modi said: " Unilateral decisions by the Center must stop."
