The Shivraj effect
Or may be it comes with the home ministry itself…
What Shivraj Patil epitomised during his epic stay at the home ministry, is being carried forward by his successor, P Chidambaram. Yes, we are talking about making insanely, awesomely, powerful statements like these that can scare the AK-47s out of terrorists and their protectors:
The home minister said the government had evidence the Mumbai terror attacks had originated from Pakistani soil.
If anything, Chidambaram has taken it a level higher by making the statement two weeks after the attacks. In case of Patil, they usually came within two hours.
