Young MPs respond to Mumbai terror Attacks- Joachim Baxla
Alipurduar-ST(West Bengal )
The Mumbai blasts were unforseen. Yet, this is a failure on the part of intelligence which should be prepared for such eventualities. It is also a failure on the part of politicians since as policymaker we ought to have formulated strong security policies. The anger and grief that has been directed at politicians is not unjustified. We must take this as a feedback from the people.We are the representatives of the people and we are part of the same society. We too feel the same loss in such incidents. However, a gap is also being created and this is causing misunderstandings. We must all work together in such situations and blaming someone will not assuage anyone's grief. The people have been hurt and we must take steps to assure them and generate confidence. There is some opinion that India is por and its large population is its weakness. I do not think so. I think we have proved that we are economically powerful when so many Indian companies buy foreign companies abroad and also that our population can be our strength.
