Mumbai: Even as 13/7 Mumbai serial blasts rocked entire nation, the Central government still seems to have not woken up from its slumber. It has been a week since the blasts were reported, but no serious effort has been made by the government to boost the internal security.

It can be gauged from the fact that the fate of many projects related to internal security is still hanging in balance. According to the sources, after the 13/7 Mumbai blasts it has become necessary to establish coordination amongst various Ministries. Ironically, no efforts are being made in this direction, especially when common consent is to be formed over the Home Ministry's National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC) and Cabinet Association for security related issues.

Soon after the 26/11 Mumbai attack in 2008, the Central Government had assured to establish NCTC, but it is still in pipeline.

Moreover, for the investigation of terrorist attack, the Government has formed National Investigation Agency (NIA), but it has still not reached an advanced stage. Even NIA and ATS (Anti-Terrorism Squad) are at loggerheads after the Mumbai blast.

The Government has framed Multi Agency Centre (MAC) and State Multi Agency Centre (SMAC), but none of them has been able to give clear reports of terror attacks, on which further action could be taken.

German Bakery blast of Pune, Ganga ghat blast of Varanasi and Jama Masjid attack in Delhi are the examples which show government’s lackadaisical approach towards boosting security in the country.
