Mumbai: Lambasting Congress for alleged
failure and inaction against terrorism, Shiv Sena Executive
President Uddhav Thackeray on Thursday said instead of just saluting
the resilient spirit of Mumbaikars, the Government should see
to it that innocent people don`t suffer.

"The (Congress) rulers salute Mumbai`s spirit and then
easily forget everything. Why should innocent people suffer?
Who will take responsibility (of the attack)? They
(Government) should be taken to task," Uddhav told reporters
outside J J Hospital where he had gone to visit some of the
victims of yesterday`s serial bomb blasts.

Asked about the responsibility of the Centre and
intelligence agencies, an angry Uddhav said, "This is
happening way too often...Is there a Government at the Centre?
Every two to three years the city gets attacked by
terrorists."

After seeing the wounded persons, the Sena leader
said, "So many injured... some lost their legs and hands...what
is their fault?"

Uddhav had earlier also visited the blast victims
admitted at KEM Hospital in central Mumbai.
At least 21 people were killed and 141 injured in
three blasts that rocked Mumbai last evening.
