Lucknow/Siliguri (West Bengal). Oct 13: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Rajnath Singh has criticised the Central Government for not doing enough to prevent terrorist-related events like the Ajmer blast.

"The Home Minister is busy playing the role of an astrologer. Again, he comes up with warnings saying, religious places, VIP's and other sensitive areas of the country are under threat from terrorists. I think this government has never taken terrorism as a major challenge," Singh said.

Meanwhile, security has been tightened in Siliguri following the Ajmer attack.

The Railway Protection Force (RPF) has deployed bomb detection squads at all entry and exit points of the main railway station.

Officials said they also planned to introduce explosive vapour detectors.

"We will be using these instruments in preventing terrorist activities in North Bengal, especially in the railways. We have alerted all government railway police personnel," said Mahender Singh Poonia, Superintendent of Police, Railways.

Thursday"s bomb explosion inside the famous Ajmer Sharif shrine claimed two lives and injured 17 others.

The blast occurred at around 6.15 p.m. just before the end of the Ramadan fasting month.
