Nagpur: The Opposition on Tuesday moved a breach
of privilege notice against Maharashtra Government in the
Legislative Council over "leakage" of the report of Ram
Pradhan Committee, set up to probe 26/11 terror attacks.

House Chairman Shivajirao Deshmukh said he would discuss
the matter with all officials concerned, including former IAS
officer Ram Pradhan, before taking a decision on the notice.

BJP and Shiv Sena gave two separate notices to the
Chairman of the House against Chief Minister, Deputy Chief
Minister, Home Minister, Chief Secretary and Additional Chief
Secretary of the state.

BJP leader Pandurang Phundkar claimed that the report is
available on the internet but the Government refuses to table
it in the House.

Chief Minister Ashok Chavan had promised to table the
report in the session, he said.

Shiv Sena leader Divakar Raote also moved a notice,
saying the Government failed to table the report in the House
but it was made "public by media".

The Government went to the Supreme Court against the
decision of the High Court asking it to submit the Pradhan
Committee report. The Apex court stayed publication of the
report, Raote said.
