Security of churches: Central team in Karnataka
September 23, 2008 16:12 IST
The team led by Special Secretary (Internal Security) M L Kumawat held discussions with state police officials and obtained details about the attacks.
The delegation comprising Union Home Ministry Joint Secretary A K Yadav visited Kulashekara church, Fr Muller Institutions at Kankanadi and Milagres church, which bore the brunt of the attacks on September 14.
Kumawat refused to talk to mediapersons saying, "We have just begun our visit."
As the central team arrived for review, Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa criticised the UPA government's move asserting that the "law and order situation is very good".
"What is happening in Delhi [Images]? Every day, innocent people are being killed by terrorists. The Centre is keeping quiet, but sends letters to Karnataka," Yeddyurappa told the media in Hubli apparently referring to the Centre's two warning advisories to it in the wake of attacks on churches.
'More than two crore Hindus who were forced out of Kashmir are on streets in Delhi and what action the Centre has taken to restore normalcy and ensure their return?" Yeddyurappa asked.
