CPI-M wants parliament session on terror attacks

New Delhi (PTI): Charging the UPA government with failing to protect the right to life of the citizens, former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda on Sunday demanded convening of an emergency session of Parliament to discuss terrorism.

In a statement issued here, the Janata Dal (Secular) president said though "this was not the time to engage in political blame game, the impunity with which the terrorists are carrying out their mission across the country at regular intervals is a reflection on the competence and ability of the ruling coalition to combat the menace".

He said the government should convene an emergency session of Parliament to discuss "this aggression on the nation and evolve a political consensus to put up a unified resistance against the forces of communalism and terrorism."

While expressing shock at the serial blasts which rocked the national capital yesterday, Gowda said the government "which is willing to put even the nation's sovereignty and its own survival at stake for the sake of so-called energy security is unable to safeguard even the constitutional right of life of its citizens."
