Step up vigilance resources to check terror acts: MurthySeptember 15th, 2008 - 10:52 pm ICT by IANS
Bangalore, Sep 15 (IANS) Infosys Technologies Ltd chief mentor N.R. Narayana Murthy Monday called upon the government to step up vigilance resources to make sure innocent people do not die and get injured in terror acts.Expressing anguish and sadness over the death of innocent people in New Delhi serial blasts Saturday, Murthy told reporters here that every citizen had to think first as an Indian irrespective of religion.
“What happened in Delhi the other day - serial blasts - is a pretty sad thing. We need to enhance our vigilance resources to make sure innocent people do not die or get injured,” Murthy said on the sidelines of a function on the company’s sprawling campus.
“I am sure it will happen. Now that we have seen so many such occurrences (blasts), I have no doubt the government will give it (raising resources) a top priority,” Murthy said.
Declining to comment on the alleged involvement of some techies in sending e-mails about the deadly blasts to news channels, Murthy said it was difficult to pass judgement on such sensitive issues without the relevant data.
Asked if he has any suggestion to the government in tackling the terror menace, the IT bellwether chairman said there were enough smart people in the government to handle the problem.
“Now that it (blasts) has become a first burner problem, I am sure they (government) will put their best brains together and come out with a good solution. The ultimate solution is to create an environment where any issue can be discussed in a civilised manner peacefully and in a way that we don’t resort to violence,” Murthy said.
Five serial bomb blasts rocked the national capital Saturday evening claiming 23 lives and injuring over 100 people.
