BJP leader Vijay Kumar Malhotra on Sunday slammed the Central Government, holding it responsible for the bomb blasts in Hyderabad.

Malhotra, the Leader of the Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, said the government was not vigilant enough to avert the rising incidents of terror attacks in different parts of the country.

“There are many localities in Delhi which have become den for Indian Mujahedeen (IM), Lashkar-e-Toiba, SIMI and ISI. But the police do not dare to enter these localities,” he said.

“And if the police enter these areas, anti-social elements chase them away immediately. Due to vote bank politics, the Congress and some so called human rights organisations oppose police investigations in these places. Even many pseudo-secular people are very active to get the terrorists belonging to LeT and IM released,” Malhotra said.

“In last few years, the intelligence agencies had alerted the government several times on the security situation in Delhi, but the government remained in a slumber,” he said. 

Malhotra demanded that CCTV cameras should be installed in every corner of Delhi and all those areas under suspicion should be kept under strict surveillance.
