Meanwhile, Leader of Opposition in Assembly Eknath Khadse, who was present at the meeting said that he advocated about enacting stronger laws on the lines of POTA and TADA to deal with the menace of terror.

There is no need to politicise the issue of blasts and the Opposition parties would support the government in its efforts, Khadse said.
