After the horrible terrorist attack in Mumbai the Home Minister of India Sivraj Patil has got time to resign from the cabinet. During his home ministership this is not the first act of terrorism in India. He serving the country as the Home Minister for more than four years. Patil is a total failure. So many incidents of terrorist attack had occured in different parts of this country causing death of thousands of innocent people including the foreigners. But his sense did not act so far. After the latest Mumbai incident actually Patil was forced to resign. So unshameful he is. In my opinion Patil should be arrested. He should be suspended from the ruling Congress party. And why not ? Patil had been the Home Minister. In lieu of that he was having a monthly salary. He was provided with Z category security arrangement. He had been enjoying all sorts of advantages and opportunities. In return what he had done for the safety and security measures of the people of India. Actually nothing. And not only this good for nothing Home Minister, the entire government at the centre and the state government of Maharastra should resign. It is really shameful that these politicians are still in power.
