As predicted on this blog several days ago, the Maharastra CM has resigned.
The Singh government is still in place but there is still no plan. Talk of more coastal security, better intelligence and lists of terrorists being sent to Pakistan have not calmed the fears of Mumbai and the rest of India.
After 9/11, Bush set up a new security department – Homeland Security – changed aircraft and airport security and launched a strike on Bin Laden. It won him a second term in office and America has not had another 9/11 incident.
Will the relentless calls for the government to act from the Mumbaikars spurn on PM Singh, or will they give confidence to the opposition to call for vote of no confidence in parliament?
I believe that unless the Government takes firm action by this weekend, its future looks very uncertain.
