High alert in Kerala, Assembly deplores attack
Thiruvananthapuram: A high alert has been
sounded in Kerala in the backdrop of the serial blasts in
Mumbai, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy told the Assembly on Thursday.
Airports, railway and bus stations, places of worship,
major state and central installations, and public places have
been brought under the ambit of high security, Chandy said in
reply to a submission by Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan.
Bomb squads have also been deployed at vital spots and
installations, he said.
Condemning the terror strike as a "dastardly act", Chandy
said the nation should stay united to isolate extremists who
were a threat to the unity and integrity of the country.
"The terror strikes in Mumbai is an attempt to weaken the
nation and create anarchy," he said.
Sharing the sentiments of the House, Achuthanandan said
the entire nation should join hands "to defeat the evil
designs of terrorists."
Terror struck Mumbai last evening when three near
simultaneous blasts ripped through crowded areas killing at
least 21 people and injuring 141 others.
