The country's internal security, against the backdrop of growing terror threat perception, and the Bharatiya Janata Party's attack on the government is understood to have figured prominently at a high-level meeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had with his senior ministeral colleagues on Monday night.

The CCPA meeting reviewed the internal security situation in the wake of reports of growing terror threats to key installations, including nuclear plants.

Home Minister Shivraj Patil would be replying to a short duration discussion on the internal security in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday.

The BJP has been targeting the government on its alleged failure to manage internal security and accused it of going soft on terrorists.

The meeting also discussed the Women's Reservation Bill in the backdrop of demand for convening an all-party meeting on the controversial issue to thrash out differences among United Progressive Alliance allies, sources said.

There have been divisions within UPA over introduction of the long-pending Bill with the Rashtriya Janata Dal demanding quota-within-quota and an all-party meeting to arrive at a consensus.

The meeting also took up the Left parties' opposition to the fresh proposals of the government on Banking and Pensions Bills, two key legislations relating to economic reforms.

The government's fresh proposals came as it is keen to see the passage of the two bills and the main aim is to how to make them palatable to the Left.
