Mumbai blasts: 5 most stupid things our politicians said - DNA

Everytime there is a tragedy in India, politicians add to the misery of the victims, be it appearing in hospitals uninvited, or by spouting inane and insensitive platitudes.

Barely 24 hours after three bombs rocked crowded places in Mumbai, they were at it again, with their daft quotes and politicking.

Here are five of the worst.

"Not an intelligence failure'

- P Chidambaram

The Union home minister admitted that there were no intelligence inputs in tragic happenings, but refraining from calling it an intelligence failure. We wonder if Chidu's intellgence, in all its 3 digit glory, has cooked up a perplexing paradox simply too confounding for the common man to compute (what with all that looking over the shoulder he has to do).

The Bharatiya Janata Party was quick to slam the Home Minister, as is custom, with Rajeev Pratap Rudy saying: "When any incident which occurs, when we have a large network of intelligence agencies and intelligence networks, it is a failure. So out rightly denying that it was not an intelligence failure, I think, is an act in which the home minister is trying to condone this terror attack."
