Mumbai, Jun 30 (IANS): Security has been tightened around the famed Hotel Taj Mahal Palace near Gateway of India after a threat to blow it up, official sources said here on Tuesday.

    Whenever the BJP government is caught in difficult position, either national security threat or threat Prime Minister has become new norms.

    The nation must have averted the big tragedy in Delhi with the arrest of J&K DSP Davinder Singh transporting Hizbul Mujahdeen terrorist in government vehicle with automatic rifle. This is the same DSP who has mentioned in the letter Afzal Guru to his lawyer.

    Now with Chinese threat and Covid-19 peaks the top in Maharashtra the nation should be in full alert and prepared for all out war situation.

    This phone is nothing but diversionary tactics, from the real issue to deflect the nation. But there are no compromise for national security.
