Blaming Narasimha Rao in Anderson`s exit unfortunate: Naidu

Hyderabad: BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday
said the party would raise in Parliament the Bhopal gas issue
and added it was wrong to pin the blame of UCC CEO Warren
Anderson`s exit from India on then home minister late P V
Narsimha Rao.

"The party would raise the issue in Parliament and if
necessary, it would insist to amend the act for providing
adequate compensations to victims and to increase quantum of
punishment to the accused," Naidu told reporters during an
interaction here.
"It is unfortunate and meaningless," Naidu said when
asked to react to reports that Rao was instrumental in
granting safe passage to the Union Carbide CEO.

"It is totally unjustified and incorrect to blame late P
V Narasimha Rao, as it could not have happened without the
permission of the head of the government," he said.
Congress party owed an apology to the country for
allowing Anderson get away when thousands of people died and
several others were maimed in the gas tragedy, the BJP leader
said.

Naidu, after being elected to Rajya Sabha from Karnataka,
was felicitated by party workers and leaders.
