Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has urged Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh to use his office to ensure the safety of Indian victims in the Nairobi terror attack that has left 62 people dead so far.
In a letter to the PM, Modi said, "I urge that the Centre should use all the resources available to it to provide safety and security to families of those Indians, particularly Gujaratis, who have fallen victims to the attack. Those killed and injured in the attack included Indians. This inhuman act has put many Indian origin families in an insecure position and they expect help from the Indian government immediately," Modi said. "...It is time to bring together humanitarian forces to fight the war against terrorism," he added.
