“Please, don’t cry. We can understand your agony. We will take care of you. We will provide you the best possible treatment. The government will bear all medical expenses of all the injured in the blasts.”

These were the words of comfort a visibly moved Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had for a blast victim when he visited her Sunday at the Yashoda hospital here where she was undergoing treatment.

At Omni Hospital, Singh interacted with two injured youths, Kishore (25) and Raghavendra (27) and enquired with them the reason for their visit to Dilsukhnagar on Thursday evening, when the blasts took place.

Speaking to newsmen later, the duo said, “We are happy that the Prime Minister himself has come to comfort us. He promised us all help.”

“I told the prime minister that the blast took place at Anand tiffin centre, when I went there to have some snacks. When I was narrating the incident, the prime minister was visibly moved,” said Kishore.

Meanwhile, some members of the families of the injured urged the prime minister to provide government jobs to one member each from their families.

After landing at Begumpet airport at 11.15 am by a special plane from Delhi, Singh flew to Victoria Memorial home near Dilsukhnagar by a special helicopter and from there he drove to the twin blast sites at Dilsukhnagar. He visited Anand tiffin centre, where the first blast occurred, and walked to the second blast site near Venkatadri theatre 100 yards away.

Speaking later, the Prime Minister said the government will not let the perpetrators of the crime go free. He appreciated Hyderabadis for maintaining calm after the blasts.

He assured the state government of all help from the Centre. Chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy briefed the Prime Minister on the blasts. Singh then sought more details from DGP V Dinesh Reddy.
