Home ministers of all states are expected to join the conference that would be chaired by Singh.

Prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir, cross-border terrorism, violence perpetrated by the Maoists and other issues will be discussed at the day-long meeting to be held in Delhi, a home ministry official said.

This would be the first such conference during the NDA government where all home ministers would discuss the security situation in the country.

During the previous UPA regime, the home ministry used to call a conference of chief ministers every year to discuss the country's internal security.

However, no such conference was held in last three years.
