Was blast a minor incident?

Was blast a minor incident? - Sakshi Post

When the entire country is disturbed over the twin bomb blasts in Dilsukhnagar, imagine a senior leader from the ruling party making a damaging statement in a bid to avoid criticism from the opposition parties?

It is a known fact that Kiran Kumar Reddy's government has come under severe criticism for neglecting the warning bell sounded by the Intelligence unit.

Fearing that the incident would impact the upcoming elections in 2014, PCC chief Botsa Satyanarayana made a shocking statement which is sure to spark a row. Botsa said, "Such small (minor) incidents are bound to happen even after the government takes adequate security measures."

Perhaps Botsa isn't following the news or not been told about the casualties of blasts.
This controversial remark has irked the political fraternity as well as the general public.

This is not the first that Botsa has made such irresponsible remarks. Recently, he had made a derogatory comment on the Delhi gangrape incident. Reacting to the incident, the PCC chief at a press conference in Hyderabad's Gandhi Bhavan had said, "Just because India got freedom at midnight, is it necessary for women to move on the streets at midnight?"

This comment had disappointed even the Congress High Command, which expressed deep resentment and sought an explanation from him.

Referring to Botsa's latest remark, TDP MP Devender Goud said that it was not proper on the part of the PCC chief to make such inappropriate statements over a tragic incident.

Goud also demanded that Kiran Kumar Reddy and his council of ministers take moral responsibility for the tragedy and quit their posts.

Goud's reaction is only the first on Botsa's comment. Going by the sensitivity of the matter, more will follow.
