Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday accused the opposition of trying to mislead the people over the Rafale deal, and asserted that all the details cannot be made public. 

He said the opposition was making a non-practical demand of making public the details of the Rafale jet deal with France over corruption charges.

In view of the nation's security, all details related to the deal cannot be made public, he said. 

The Minister said that the opposition leaders were making efforts to come to power by telling lies.

"The present government has given preference to the uplift of the poor. There were only three mobile manufacturing factories during the tenure of the previous government whereas in the four years of the present government 100 new factories have come up," he added.

Referring to national security, Rajnath Singh said that on the pattern of Israel, an integrated Border Security System was being implemented to secure and strengthen the borders.

He said it would not be possible to secure the 22,000 km of land and water borders of the country with barbed wires.

"Hence, the central government has decided to adopt technology based security system."

He said that the Modi government had checked the Maoist movement and now the security forces were successful in controlling Maoist activities.
