Jaipur, May 14 (IANS) The Rajasthan government Wednesday blamed the central government for the terror blasts that ripped through the heart of the walled city killing at least 63 people and injuring 90. “The central government is equally responsible for the terror blast in Rajasthan,” Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria told IANS at his office here, a day after the synchronised bombings. “The centre cannot absolve itself by just sending routine alerts to states.”

There had been terror attacks all over the country and the Rajasthan government was willing to take up the issue with the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government in New Delhi, Kataria said.

The minister said 46 of the 63 killed had been cremated.
