VIPs should avoid visiting Mumbai: Pawar

Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar on Tuesday night asked VIPs to avoid visiting Mumbai in the wake of the serial blasts unless their going is of any help to the affected people.

Pawar, who was the chief minister of Maharashtra during the 1993 blasts, expressed confidence that Mumbai police would take ruthless action against the perpetrators of the act.
