Surat: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra
Modi has slammed the Central government on security issues,
saying that people are getting killed in the violence of
Naxals and terrorists while the Centre is just holding
meetings on the issue.
"They (Union government) have not been able to fulfill
the responsibility assigned to them. Day and night we are
witnessing Naxal attacks and terrorists attacks and hundreds
are getting killed everyday. And the government is just
holding meetings and making false promises," Modi, speaking at
a function in Nani Karol village in Surat Sunday night, said.
"Doesn`t the common man deserve security? Shouldn`t
the common man live a peaceful life? Shouldn`t the common man
get benefit of development? No, they (Central government) only
have time for dirty game of politics," Modi said.
The Chief Minister`s comment comes in the backdrop of
the derailment of Gyaneshwari Express train in West Midnapore
district of West Bengal on Friday last in which over 140
people died. It has been alleged that the derailment had been
caused due to sabotage of railway track by Naxals.
Last month, 76 police personnel were killed in an
ambush in one of the deadliest attacks in years in Dantewada
Modi also criticised the Union government for its
anti-farmer policy and accused it of adopting step-motherly
treatment towards Gujarat state.
