The car blast in Coimbatore happened because of intelligence failure, alleged former Municipal Administration Minister S.P. Velumani here on Thursday.

A review meeting was conducted at the District Collector Office in which the MLAs in the district participated and presented the top 10 grievances in their constituency.

Speaking to presspersons after the meeting, Mr. Velumani alleged that the incident that happened last week was because of the failure of intelligence.

He also alleged, “ADGP (Intelligence) S. Davidson Devasirvatham had failed to do his work properly, which led to the incident. People of Coimbatore have been living with common brotherhood and an incident like this creates fear among people

The former Minister also demanded strict action against those involved in the incident. “The police department has to abandon the intent of revenge on the opposition parties and have to work for the security of the State,” he said.
