The newly appointed Minister of State for Home (Urban) Mohammed Arif Naseem Khan on Saturday said his first priority will be to provide security to Mumbai and its citizens. The 26/11 terror attack was the most heinous attack on this city which is the commercial capital of the country, he said. “We have learnt many lessons and the time has come to protect ourselves and the city,” Khan, who took charge today in the Ashok Chavan-led government told PTI. Khan also said his effort would be to maintain communal harmony in the state. “Besides other activities my priority will be to maintain communal harmony in the state,” Khan said. Khan a two-time MLA from the Kurla assembly constituency, came to fore during the 1992-93 communal riots in Mumbai. He was also instrumental in setting the first peace committee in suburban Ghatkopar. Khan took oath of office along with Narayan Rane and Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil at Raj Bhavan on February 19.
