Sharing the news of the terrorist attack at a Gandhinagar temple with the expatriate Indian community at a reception in Karumba resort this evening, the Prime Minister said: "Terrorism is on its last legs now. Because we have been able to conduct the elections in Jammu and Kashmir, they are jealous".
Mr. Vajpayee asked: "Where is the Taliban today? Where is the Al-Qaeda?" He said there was a global war against terrorism and India was also determined to stamp it out.
Throughout the day, the Prime Minister was in touch with New Delhi on the second phase of polling in Jammu and Kashmir. And when news of the Gandhinagar attack was conveyed to him, Mr. Vajpayee called up the Deputy Prime Minister, L.K. Advani, and enquired about the incident.
The Prime Minister also spoke to the President, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, and assured him that the Government was doing everything it can to bring the situation under control.
He is cutting short his visit and will leave for home tomorrow morning.
