'NIA should function in all major cities of TN'

'NIA should function in all major cities of TN'

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) should function in all major cities of TN to prevent terrorism, pleaded TMC youth wing state president M Yuvaraja. In a release, he said terrorism has started raising its head in Tamil Nadu since the DMK took over.

Especially, in the last 4 months, people associated with the ISIS terrorist movement were found in major cities like Erode, Salem, Coimbatore and the NIA arrested them. Subsequently, on the eve of Diwali, a gas cylinder exploded in a car near the Eswaran temple in Coimbatore. Jamesha Mubin, who was in the car, died in this incident.

The police, who initially said that it was a cylinder accident, did not reveal any information until that evening. Coimbatore has become a camp of terrorists. It has come to light that a huge terrorist attack was  planned in Coimbatore and the people of Coimbatore were in deep fear.

The Tamil Nadu government is apathetic towards terrorism. It has been 4 days since this incident  was occurred. But, the Chief Minister Stalin has remained silent. Yesterday only, he held a consultation with the DGP, Chief Secretary and high officials. A bomb blast was planned to kill many people in Coimbatore.

The police and intelligence agencies were sleeping until a blast was occurred. Fortunately, there were no major casualties. It showed Intelligence Department's failure to provide even minimum security to people. So, NIA service should be extended to  Coimbatore and other cities like Erode and Salem. 16 months after the DMK government took charge, law and order in Tamil Nadu is questionable.

The people are in an insecure situation due to constant fear of terrorism and it is the duty of the government to ensure the safety of the people. The wrongdoers should be punished regardless of caste and religion. So, the intelligence wing should be strengthened to prevent such acts from happening and ensure safety of people.
