Chidambaram assures security to Advani's ''yatra''

P Chidambaram
New Delhi, Sept 30: Home Minister P Chidambaram assured that he would consider any specific request for providing security to ''Jan Chetna Yatra'' of senior BJP leader L K Advani.

"Providing security along the route that L K Advani takes is the responsibility of the state government. But if there is any specific request, we will certainly look into it," he said at a press conference here.

Chidambaram was responding to a question on what steps the central government would take to provide security during the ''yatra''.

"Well, I do not know the route the ''yatra'' is going to take and I cannot recollect (receiving) any letter requesting to provide security," he said.

Advani''s ''yatra'' will start from Bihar on Oct 11.
