New Delhi: Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde on Friday addressed Parliament in the wake of twin blasts in Hyderabad that killed 16 people and injured 119. While condoling the death  of people, he said that he would leave no stones unturned in bringing the perpetrators of the blasts to justice. 

Meanwhile, leader of opposition in Loksabha Sushma Swaraj expressed dissatisfaction over Home Minister'saddress. She raised several questions before the HM. 

" You had intelligence report of terrorists attack which you shared with states. Wasn't it your duty to help the states in bolstering position against terror?," she asked.

She also asked the government of investigate whether Akbaruddin Owaisi's hate speech was the inciting force behind the blast. 

She also demanded a statement from Shinde over the prepardeness of the government in averting such incidents in future.
