It is my earnest plea to you that Bangalore and its IT infrastructure be protected under BJP leadership in Karnataka. I heard unaccounted number of terrorists had landed in Mumbai. So far only 10 have been accounted for.

As you are the Home Minister I felt the CONgress would try to score points against BJP by not sharing intelligence with Karnataka. Please do be vigilant. I am sure you would be. BJP has to win the next General elections to save India.

By the way I live in Chennai. I hope one BJP gets into power in TN as well.
