Bhopal: Congress General Secretary
Digvijay Singh said here on Friday that the manner in which Union
Carbide Corporation Chairman, Warren Anderson was allowed to
leave Bhopal after the gas disaster in 1984 was not an issue
at all.

"It does not matter whether Anderson left Bhopal by
plane or train or walked to New Delhi," Singh told reporters
here.
He said that "the bigger issue was the relief and
rehabilitation of the gas victims who are still suffering 25
years after the disaster."

When asked about the state Chief Minister Shivraj
Singh Chouhan`s statement that Arjun Singh was not speaking
truth about how Anderson left Bhopal, the Congress General
Secretary said "before saying this Chouhan must tell how many
truths he himself speaks."
Chouhan had claimed that an investment of Rs 3,000
crore had been made in Madhya Pradesh but no such thing was
visible on the ground, he said.
