Chavan assures adequate security after Headley`s revelations
Nagpur: Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan
on Thursday assured of adequate security arrangements in Maharashtra
in the wake of testimony by the 26/11 accused, David Coleman
Headley, about Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray.
"Headly had revealed in Chicago that Thackeray was also a
target of Pakistan intelligence agency ISI and the Indian
government was awaiting details from the US government through
official channels about the exact plot but at the same time
Maharashtra government was reviewing security arrangements of
individuals including Thackeray," Chavan told reporters on the
sidelines of a function here.
The state government has been in constant touch with
Centre and is sharing intelligence "even on hourly basis" and
there was "nothing to worry". After the 26/11 Mumbai terror
attacks, the Maharashtra government has geared it up to face
any challenges, he added.
On a Rs 11 crore bill submitted by the ITBP, guarding
Ajmal Kasab in Mumbai, Chavan said there was no controversy
over the payment of paid-security for Kasab, adding, "I will
talk to authorities in Delhi and settle the issue".
Chavan informed the state government has introduced a
panel system to split Prabhags into two wards in municipal
corporations and four wards at council levels, ahead of the
2012 civic polls.
The Chief Minister dismissed reports of any rift with
the NCP over the MCB issue. "No one should read more into
Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar`s absence today for
inauguration of divisional sports complex in city," he said.
On filling up lone Rajya Sabha seat in Maharashtra,
Chavan said the decision will be taken by the party high
