Bangalore, Jul 28" The Congress-led opposition today staged a walk out in the Karnataka Assembly, protesting against unsatisfactory reply by Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa over the serial bomb blasts in the city on July 25.

Initiating a debate under Rule-69 in the House before the question hour, Leader of Opposition in the assembly, Mallikarjun Kharge demanded a reply from the Government on a live-bomb found near a shopping mall in the city on the same day.

Mr Kharge criticised Mr Yeddyurappa for stating that some vested interests were attempting to destabilise the State Government.

''This amply proves that there is a lack of coordination between police and the Intelligence-wing in the State,'' he alleged.

Mr Yeddyurappa said the Government was planning to introduce photo-identity cards to people living in big cities, besides installing secret cameras in sensitive places at other cities in the State.

Home Minister V S Acharya said the state officials were in touch with their counterparts in other States and the Centre in exchanging the inputs on terrorists activities.

The Chief Minister and the Home Minister said the Centre had not provided any input or alerted the State Government, prior to the blasts, which claimed one life and injured several others in the city.
