New Delhi: India fears possible militant attacks during the coming general election campaign, home minister P. Chidambaram said. The country remains nervous after Islamist militants killed 166 people in a strike on the financial hub Mumbai last November. “In the run up to the elections, there will be great temptation to attempt something dramatic. So we have to be very vigilant,” Chidambaram told the ‘Headlines Today’ news channel on Wednesday night.
