Bhopal: A Madhya Pradesh minister today
asked senior Congress leader and then Chief Minister of the
state Arjun Singh to "break his silence" on the issue of
Warren Anderson being allowed to leave the nation soon after
the Bhopal gas tragedy.
"I think it is high time Arjun Singh broke his silence on
this issue and let the world know what prompted the then
Madhya Pradesh government to allow Anderson to leave the
country," state Parliamentary Minister Narottam Mishra told
reporters at a cabinet briefing.
Mishra also said it was for the Congress to clear all
doubts as to why the Union Carbide chief was allowed to leave
soon after the world`s biggest industrial disaster.
Arjun Singh was Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh when
poisonous methyl isocyanate leaked from the Union Carbide
factory in Bhopal on the intervening night of December 2-3,
1984 killing over 15,000 people and maiming several others.
