Ratlam (MP): Madhya Pradesh BJP today
demanded judicial review of former Prime Minister Rajiv
Gandhi`s role in then Union Carbide Corporation Chief, Warren
Anderson`s exit from India after Bhopal Gas Tragedy.

The party passed a resolution on Bhopal Gas Disaster
blaming former Prime Minister for not only releasing Anderson
under US pressure, but also giving him a royal send-off from
India, demanding a judicial review of his role in the matter.

The resolution, moved by Rajya Sabha MP Raghunandan
Sharma, was passed on the first day of the two-day meeting of
state BJP executive, senior party leader, Nand Kumar Singh
Chouhan told reporters.

The party also demanded extradition of Anderson for
facing trial, declaring remaining 20 wards as gas affected and
reconsidering the number of deceased persons which according
to the Centre is over 15,000 while the number keeps on
increasing due to the lethal effects of the gas.

Terming the recent compensation package as very less, the
resolution demanded to enhance it in accordance with the
present figure of number of deaths and affected persons.
