Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh made a visit to the Dilsukhnagar area of the city of Hyderabad on Sunday. His visit comes three days after two bomb blasts killed 16 people and left over 100 injured.

Manmohan Singh visited the injured at two hospitals in the city, Yashoda hospital and Omni hospital. He met the victims and pledged that everything possible was being done by the government to help them. He said, “I am here to stand in solidarity with the people of the city. We should maintain peace and calm”.

The security was tight for Manmohan Singh’s visit as he avoided travelling by road. The Prime Minister arrived at Begumpet Airport after travelling on to Victoria Memorial School by helicopter and then being driven on to the first blast site.

The two blasts exploded minutes apart from each other in the city on Thursday. The capital city, Delhi has been put on high alert after the incident with extra security being deployed around the India Gate and areas where lots of people gather. The Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Nallari Kiran Kumar Reddy stated that 3500 closed-circuit television cameras would be installed across Hyderabad for better surveillance and security.
