The BJP on Saturday blamed the Central government's handling of internal security for the Hyderabad bombings and sought a high-level investigation into the explosion.
"We have been constantly warning the Centre that it should take adequate measures to strengthen internal security, but the Congress-led government has never bothered to rein in terror. These condemnable blasts appear yet another act of terror in the face of the UPA's soft approach on terrorism," senior BJP leader Vijay Kumar Malhotra said.
The BJP leader maintained that the government was required to revive anti-terror laws to combat the scourge.
"We came with POTA and they(UPA) scrapped it for their own vote-bank politics. Time and again, it has been proved that you cannot deal with terror with ordinary laws,you have to have tough measures to fight the scourge," he remarked.
