Centre had no hand in Anderson`s release: Sachin Pilot
Ajmer: Union Minister Sachin Pilot on Monday asserted that there was no interference of the Central
government in facilitating release of then Union Carbide CEO
Warren Anderson after the Bhopal gas tragedy.
"The Central government did not interfere in the matter
of Warren Anderson," he told reporters here.
The Congress leader said the decision to allow Anderson
to leave Bhopal was taken by the then Madhya Pradesh Chief
Minister Arjun Singh.
He said that as per the situation that time, Singh had
taken the "right decision".
Without going into further details, Pilot said Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh has constituted a Group of Ministers
headed by Home Minister P Chidambaram to go into the matter.
Earlier, the minister inaugurated a foot-over-bridge built
at a cost of Rs 83 lakhs near the railway station here. He
also distributed "patta" (lease) of newly constructed houses
under the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission.
