New Delhi, Nov 27 (ANI): Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh will visit the terror-hit Mumbai where series of bomb blasts and terror attacks last night killed at least 100 people and injured over 200 more.
His visit is expected to take place as soon as the ongoing encounter against terrorists holed up in various spots ends.
Bharatiya Janata Party leader L K Advani will accompany Dr. Singh to the terror-hit city.
Advani was originally slated to leave for Mumbai this morning, but rescheduled it after Dr Singh called him to join him.
Dr Singh will also address the nation in the evening.
Dr. Singh had earlier condemned the serial terrorist attacks in Mumbai and assured the State Government of all cooperation and help.
The Prime Minister has called an emergency meeting of the Union Cabinet to review the situation in the aftermath of the attacks, and to determine what measures are needed to keep the law and order situation in Mumbai and in other parts of the country under control.
As an immediate measure of help, he directed the rushing of about 200 NSG commandos to Mumbai to help the state police in dealing with the ongoing terrorist crisis in the city.
PMO sources also confirmed that air surveillance has been increased in all over India and vital installations have been put on high alert following the attacks in Mumbai. (ANI)
