With the opposition attacking the government for delay in compensation to the victims of 26/11 terror strikes, Congress on Thursday hoped adequate steps would be taken by the state and the Centre if there has been lacunae in giving relief.

"We hope adequate steps will be taken. We request the state and the central government that if there is anything that requires attention, it should be given top priority," Party spokesperson Shakeel Ahmed told reporters in New Delhi.

He was replying to a volley of questions about the allegations of Leader of Opposition L K Advani and other leaders that a large number of the family members of those killed or injured in the terror strikes are yet to get compensation.

"The family members of victims should be supported and they should be able to receive whatever is possible by the government...We urge both governments to look into the matter seriously," Ahmed added.

The party also said that different opinions being voiced about the killing of police officers during the Mumbai terror strikes is a "sensitive issue" and efforts should be taken to ensure there is no confusion on it.

"This is a very sensitive issue....There should not be any confusion on it. Many types of opinions have been voiced on the issue. The state government is probing the case and can examine the issue if it feels the need. We as a (political) party say if there is any grievance by anbody, it should be looked into," Ahmad said.
