Bombay Has Reached Its Breaking Point Says Shobha De
"Bombay has reached its breaking point and now this time its not going to be about lighting candles, showing resilience..its about protecting ourselves because our government cannot protect us," says Shobha De, columnist, on ndtv panel discussion.
She questions, "Why does Bombay which pays crores of rupees not have a National Security Guard?"
"Why did the Navy Commandos not act immediately? Whose orders were they waiting for? Why did the Prime Minister of India not give those orders?"
"I can tell you why he did not give those orders. He did not give those orders because he is not concerned with our safety. Politicians, whoever they may be from the PM to Mr. Advani..to Sonia Gandhi...they all have their own Z-plus security and that is all that matters to them."
I want to ask India's politicians, "When can we sleep in peace and safety?"
