Delhi Commonwealth Games could be attractive terror target: Sheila Dikshit

New Delhi, May 2 : Delhi Chief Minster Sheila Dikshit on Sunday said that the Government is not going to leave any stone unturned as the upcoming Delhi Commonwealth Games could be an attractive targets for terrorists.

Interacting with media, Dikshit also asked people of the National Capital Region (NCR) not to get panicked over the advisory issued on possible terror threats.

"I will tell you that Commonwealth Games would be an attractive target for them (terrorists). The aim of terrorists is to destabilise the country and show that the government cannot hold the Commonwealth games, Dikshit said.

Dikshit blamed that terror elements always tried to destabilise the country but the Government will over come the challenge thrown by them.

"Nobody's life will come to a standstill. And certainly no panic should be there. Of course the police, the Home Ministry and Lt Governor are doing their best and they are doing their work," Dikshit said.

Dikshit's comments came in the backdrop of US, UK and Australia warning about "imminent terror attacks" on Delhi's busy public and market places.

Commenting whether people should remain indoors, Delhi Lt Governor Tejindar Khanna said people should come out of fear psychosis.

"Nobody is saying that people should stay at home. Because that would be, I think, just acting out of fear psychosis," Khanna said.

On Saturday, the US, UK and Australia have issued advisories, warning of imminent terror attacks in the capital, particularly in market places like Connaught Place, Greater Kailash and Chandni Chowk.

During last two days Delhi remained under a thick security blanket with Delhi Police deploying personnel on streets and crowded commercial and market centres.
