'Centre has failed in providing security to nation', alleges Ramdev

Raipur, July 7 (ANI): Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev on Sunday condemned the serial blasts that rocked Bodh Gaya's Mahabodhi temple, and blamed the Congress-led UPA Government for its repeated failures to check such militant attacks.

"Everyday when there are so many Maoists attack, terror attacks, reported from different parts of the country then it simply means that the current Central Government has failed in providing security to the country and the people," he told the media here.

Eight serial explosions rocked the internationally renowned temple town of Bodhgaya, including four in the Mahabodhi temple complex, injuring two monks in the blasts suspected to be engineered by some terrorist organisation.

While four blasts took place inside the Mahabodhi temple complex, three occurred in Karmapa monastery, one each near the 80-ft Buddha statue and at the bus stand near bypass. The blasts took place between 5:30 to 5:58 a.m.

The injured have been rushed to the Magadh Hospital for treatment.

Teams from the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and National Security Guards (NSG) are presently at the blasts site.

An alert has been issued in the entire state with additional security forces being deployed at all religious places. (ANI)
