investigation into attempts by SIMI and IM to make Aurangabad
Dilip Gandhi (BJP) demanded that the External Affairs
Ministry take appropriate measures to bring back an Indian
from Nagpur who was in a Pakistani jail till some time ago.
"The MEA did not give the issue the attention it deserved. He
only has to be issued an Identity Card," Gandhi said.
Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury (Cong) drew the attention of the
House to reports that drug resistant medicines for TB are
being sold in some parts of West Bengal.
"For every three persons, two people are falling prey to
TB. We have failed miserably to protect the affected people,"
he said, adding that the government should put in place a
regulatory mechanism to deal with this problem.
Ram Shankar (BJP) said water in Agra is contaminated and
salty. "30 per cent of the people in the district have to buy
water while 70 per cent have to consume this water. This is
