Delhi blasts will have no effect on Indo-Pak peace process: Jaiswal

November 01, 2005 15:46 IST

Making it clear that the recent serial blasts in Delhi would have "no effect" on the Indo-Pak peace process, Union Minister of State for Home Sriprakash Jaiswal Tuesday said security agencies had obtained "important clues" regarding the explosions and investigation was moving in the "right direction".

"The Delhi serial blasts will have no effect on the ongoing peace process between India and Pakistan," Jaiswal told reporters in Sultanpur.

"There are some terrorist organisations who do not want relations between the two countries to improve, but they will not succeed in their designs," he said.

Security agencies probing the serial blasts in Delhi had obtained important clues and the culprits would soon be exposed, the minister said.

He admitted that local intelligence, especially of police, needed further improvement and said the government was taking necessary steps in this direction.

Referring to the transfer of power in Jammu and Kashmir, he said the Congress-led government in the state would carry forward the good works of the Mufti government.

On the recent criticism of Uttar Pradesh Governor T V Rajeswar by the Samajwadi Party, Jaiswal said, "The governor did nothing unconstitutional" in visiting Mau.

He decried the state government for what he alleged "leaking" its correspondence with the governor.

On the state's demand for funds for police modernisation, Jaiswal said further funds would be released only when the state government furnished the utilisation certificate with regard to funds already released in the past.
