Indian Response to Terrorism

Home minister Mr Shivraj Patil was today under intense pressure to quit his post coming under attack from within the UPA coalition and the Opposition amidst growing concern within the Congress party itself over his handling of internal security. The all-round attack on Patil in the wake of serial blasts in Delhi on Saturday that claimed 24 lives came as Congress president Mrs Sonia Gandhi called a meeting of senior leaders to discuss the internal security situation in which Mr Patil was significantly not present. – The Statesman, 15 September 2008.
