NEW DELHI: Even as there are no specific intelligence inputs of a law and order challenge in Mumbai in the light of Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray’s deteriorating health, the Centre has kept paramilitary forces on standby in Maharashtra as a precautionary measure.
Government sources said Central forces on way to Gujarat for poll duty have been asked to break their journey and be on standby in Maharashtra for immediate deployment in case the situation in Mumbai and other cities in the state were to flare up.
"The Union home ministry is in constant touch with the Maharashtra DGP and is closely monitoring the developments in Mumbai," a senior MHA official said adding that more forces would be spared as soon as a request is made by the state.
The official, however, said there were no inputs yet from the Central intelligence agencies of an immediate law and order eventuality in Mumbai. Thackeray has been ailing for last several days, and is admitted in Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai. His health is said to have taken a turn for the worse late last night.
