Chief minister Prithviraj Chavan said the process of upgrading the security cover for the citizens, public and private property was a continuous process.
On Monday, Chavan, Governor K Sankaranarayanan, home minister RR Patil, police commissioner Satyapal Singh and family members of victims and heroes, paid floral tributes to those felled during the three day siege that brought the city to its knees on November 26, 2008
Talking to the media after paying tributes to the martyrs, Chavan said the state and central intelligence and security agencies were working together to achieve the desired goal. “The coastal and other security measures are being continuously updated by the state. It’s an unending process.”
Chavan said that the inadequacies in the security measures would be addressed so that the citizens felt safer.
Four years after the 26/11 terrors attacks, the state government has received flak for not fulfilling its promises in making the security cover stronger. Many plans that were devised in the wake of the 60-hour attack still remain on paper.
Chavan also assured people in the Naxal-infested areas of the state where a member of local self government was killed recently. “Various schemes are being implemented and senior leaders such as [union agriculture minister] Sharad Pawar and [union home minister] Sushilkumar Shinde are actively supporting the state government on this issues.”
