Terming the terror strikes in Mumbai as the result of "failure" on the part of intelligence and security agencies, CPI General Secretary A B Bardhan on Thursday demanded resignation of Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil.
"Home Minister Shivraj Patil should resign as it is his responsibility and not of the state government. But the state government could not be given a clean chit as it too failed in providing security to Mumbaikars," Bardhan said adding that the Maharashtra government was the most inefficient government.
Bardhan said terrorist attack has exposed the chinks in the armour of Central intelligence and security forces.
Expressing concern over the attack, he said that an organised and sophisticated terrorist outfit exposing the tall claim of the Central government about its intelligence preparedness has done it.
The terrorists have attacked seven places right from north to south Mumbai and the government did not have any information, Bardhan said.
He said, "We want to know from the government the strategy adopted to check the frequent terrorists attacks and also to nab the terrorists."
