Narendra Modi Disappointed By PM; Blames Pakistan For Mumbai Attacks
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi visited Mumbai on Friday morning to pay homage to senior police officers who lost their lives fighting with the terrorists on Wednesday and to back the security forces. He also visited the Oberoi hotel. He wanted to go inside the hotel but was held back by security agencies.
Addressing media outside the terrorist attacked Oberoi Hotel Modi said "The terror strikes in Mumbai is an attack on the sovereignty of the nation. The people of India should unite to root out the terrorism menace. The country had pinned a lot of hope on the Prime Minister but his address was disappointing. He should urgently convene a meeting of Chief Ministers to discuss issues of coastal security."
"Pakistan has violated the UN convention on the use of land and sea routes for launch of terror strikes against India. This is for the first time Pakistan has allowed use of sea routes to further terrorism against India," Modi said.
"Terrorists have targeted US, British and Israeli citizens and made Mumbai a place that has been hit by international terrorism," He said.
Modi also announced a sum of Rs one crore for the family of martyred jawans, who were killed in the Mumbai attacks.
