No law & order in Maharashtra, J&K: Jyoti Basu

July 14, 2006 17:44 IST

The serial bomb blasts in Mumbai and the attacks on tourists in Srinagar have shown that there is no law and order in Maharashtra and Jammu and Kashmir, veteran CPI-M leader Jyoti Basu said in Kolkata on Friday.

"There is no law and order there. It was also an absolute intelligence failure," Basu said, when asked whether he thought intelligence failure was responsible for the attacks.

He was speaking to reporters after a meeting of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) state secretariat attended by West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and senior party leaders, including the state's Left Front chairman Biman Bose.

A series of blasts on Mumbai's suburban trains on Tuesday killed 200 people and left 714 injured. A string of grenade attacks in Srinagar the same day killed eight persons, including six tourists from West Bengal.
