Pune: CPM leader Sitaram Yechury today
described the judicial verdict in Bhopal gas disaster case as
`unfortunate` urging Central Government to go in for an
appeal against it in a higher court.

The investigation into the case was not carried out
properly, Yechury told reporters here, adding that a fresh
inquiry was needed to be set up to give justice to those
affected by the tragedy.

On the IPL controversy, he said it reflected excesses of
capitalism and reiterated the party demand for constitution of
a Joint Parliamentary Committee to find out the facts
regarding the massive money pumped into the league.

Yechury said the Left parties would analyse the setback
they suffered in West Bengal municipal elections but denied
that it was an indication of their deteriorating influence in
the state. The results also did not warrant an early assembly
poll, he added.
