The bomb blast at Mehrauli flower market killed one person and left 17 injured.

Party president Rajnath Singh, in a message from Salem, Tamil Nadu, where he has gone for a rally, said: “Terrorists have declared a war against the country and the prime minister, it seems, has lost his commitment to fight against terror.
