After 26/11 attacks, Maharashtra State Security Council holds second meet

How serious the state is about the security and safety of citizens can be understood with the fact that the state held the second meeting of the State Security Council only after the rude shock of the 13/7 serial blasts. This council was formed after the Mumbai terror attacks in the year 2008. The first meeting was taken during that time and after that in the past years, no meeting was held by this security council. The recent meet was the second one which was headed by Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan. Also present during the council meet was Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, Home Minister RR Patil, Minister of State for Home Satej Patil, opposition leaders and top officials from the defense forces. The opposition said that the state should implement all the suggestions made by the State Security Council. Other significant issues discussed were coastal security, industrial and vital installations security, public awareness, police-community relations, preventing smuggling and narcotics, and technology.
