Who’s to blame?

Khaleej Times - - OPINION -

The tragedy in Mum­bai where 22 peo­ple were killed is shock­ing. It brought tears to my eyes see­ing the way peo­ple died. What’s worse is gov­ern­ment ap­a­thy. In­stead of pro­vid­ing re­lief and of­fer­ing help to the vic­tims, two po­lit­i­cal par­ties were blam­ing each other. In­fra­struc­ture devel­op­ment is last on the list for th­ese par­ties who are only keen to hang on to power at any cost. It is good that the In­dian me­dia is high­light­ing the plight of the vic­tims and the games politi­cians play. Lives have been lost, but no one seems to care. The me­dia is ask­ing the right ques­tions to the peo­ple in power. They must be held to ac­count and the guilty must be pun­ished for this tragedy. — Arun Gopal, Dubai
