Bangalore, Nov 29 (UNI) Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today said the state government will soon chalk out a new action plan for enhancing the security in the state, particularly in the city in the wake of terrorists targeting major cities.
After chairing a meeting with representatives of IT and BT companies, industrialists and hotel owners here, he said he had received some valuable and practicable suggestions, both short-term and long-term measures like sharing of intelligence data and intensification of patrolling in vulnerable areas of the city from them for enhancing security.
The new action plan would be drafted from the suggestions received from them for protecting the interests of the industries.
The Chief Minister urged the private managements to step up security measures and coordinate with civil and police administration to ensure safety of their establishments as well as public.
Most of the participants in the meeting urged the government to either provide security to establishments or allow them to have their own security system by amending the Arms Act.
Mr Yeddyurappa paid homage to slain Mumbai police officers Ashok Kamate, Hemant Karkare, Vijay Salaskar and NSG commando Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who laid down their lives while fighting terrorists in Mumbai.
The meeting observed one minute silence as a mark of respect to the innocent victims killed in the terror attacks.
