Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil is convening a high-level meeting to review the security situation in the country following two successive serial blasts rocking Bangalore and Ahmedabad.

"I do not wish to say anything other than this that a meeting will be held tomorrow at 11 am to review the security situation in the country," Patil told reporters.

In a veiled attack on BJP leader LK Advani, he said leaders should refrain from politicising the blasts and help in maintaining communal harmony.

"Let's not play the blame game. We at the Centre will be extending all help to the Gujarat government," Patil said while condemning the blasts.

He said, "Anti-national elements have been trying to create panic among the people of our country. Today's blasts in Ahmedabad seem to be part of the same strategy."
