New Delhi, Feb 22: Condemning Thursday’s twin blasts in Hyderabad, Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Sudip Bandopadhyay on Friday accused the Central Government of “overconfidence.”
“The government of India was perhaps overconfident that such attacks will not take place in the country.”
He, however, said that the TMC stood firmly behind the Centre in its fight against terror.
Earlier this morning, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde visited the twin bomb blasts site at Dilsukh Nagar in Hyderabad.
He then went to the bus shelter about 150 meters away where the second blast killed another six people and left many injured.
Shinde, accompanied by Andhra Pradesh Governor E S L Narasimhan, Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and Union Home Secretary N K Singh, later visited some hospitals where the injured persons were undergoing treatment.
Two powerful near simultaneous bomb blasts ripped through a crowded area close to a cluster of bus stands in Dilsukh Nagar area in Hyderabad on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the death toll in the twin blasts mounted to 16 on Friday with two more persons succumbing to their injuries in a hospital. (ANI)
