    Strange indeed !!! Newly inaugurated, coastal security boat catches fire,was it deliberately sabotaged?, a lot of dangerous activities is happening on our coast line,it is a well known fact that smugglers use the easy sea route to infiltrate contraband, arms & explosives in the country,reminds me of terrorists landing in Mumbai & creating mayhem in the city,i hope the Indian Coast Guard & Intelligence agencies diffuse the potential dangerous crisis.Dude,it is plain STUPIDITY, to ask our home minister to resign !! you must be aware, that many times states work contradictorily against each other, purely because of their political affiliation. example: West Bengal,Mamta Banerjee desperately protecting infiltrators & terrorists from Bangla Desh.Congress ruled Karnataka is no different.Our national integrity & security should never be compromised for the sake of political gains.

    Do not take it lightly. It might be foul play to divert attention. Someone is Trying smuggle or sneek inside. People, open their eyes only when something big bad thing happen like 26/11.....

    I would request you to kindly refrain from assigning the reason for every fire breaking out anywhere as "short circuit" :) few days back a bus caught fire and the cause was "short circuit". Now a boat catches fire and again the same reason..

    This is coastal security boat. After all boat reserved for the security of our coasts from.. no need if any cbi investigations or arrest of anyone or compensating anyone no protest no doubts of foul play, because this will not bring any blind votes to govt. So we can forget this and continue with other sadakchaap politics.
