Why ATF?

The idea is to be better prepared, clarifies Khattar

Clarifying that the decision to form this force had nothing to do with any specific threat being faced by Haryana, the CM said, "Prevention is better than cure."

"When attacks in Pathankot and Mumbai occurred no one knew about them... the idea is to be better prepared," he explained.

The finer modalities for setting up the ATF are being worked out, the CM said.
