The Lok Sabha on Wednesday condemned the bomb blast at the Delhi high court and said the entire nation is resolute and united in the fight against terrorism.
Expressing grief at the death and injuries to several people in the blast, members cutting across party lines asked the government to take all necessary measures to track down and bring the culprits to book.
"We hope the government will use all agencies and means to bring the culprits to book..... This is significant that the attack happened near Parliament. We are saddened that the capital of India has been attacked again," NDA Working President LK Advani said after home minister P Chidambaram made a statement in the House.
Observing that the blast occurred two days before the 10th anniversary of 9/11 terror attacks in the US, he wondered if there was a connection as terrorists tend to think on these lines.
"My suggestion is that keeping in mind this incident the government should take all necessary measures to bring the culprits to book," Advani said.
Basudeb Acharia (CPI-M) termed the blasts a "disturbing act" and said two explosions have taken place at the same site within a span of four months. There was a low intensity blast at the Delhi high court in July.
While expressing his condolences, Acharia said the entire nation is united and resolute to fight terrorism.
"Terrorists have no religion. They are out to divide and destabilise the nation. There is a need for united action against them," Acharia said, hoping that every step will be taken to fight terror.
