"The government will never compromise on the issue of terrorism," Akbar said while addressing a press conference.

He was in the city as part of ongoing initiative of Narendra Modi government to reach out to masses on successful completion of its three years.

Terming demonetisation as a "transformative step" the minister said representatives of various countries are visiting India to study this measure.

Later, when some reporters sought his reaction on the Vijay Mallya issue, Akbar refused to comment saying the matter is pending before a British court.

Mallya, who is wanted on loan defaults to several banks amounting to nearly Rs 9,000-crore, was on Tuesday granted bail till 4 December by a London court hearing his extradition case.
