Lucknow: Bhartiya Janata Party on Tuesday said
it will make public the documents relating to the appointment
of PJ Thomas as the Central Vigilance Commissioner by the
next week.

"We have all the papers related to appointment of
Thomas as the CVC which will be exposed before the people by
the next week...We are waiting for the Parliament to get
over," BJP national secretary Kirit Somaiya told reporters
in Lucknow.

"On the basis of the papers in possession, I would
like to say that appointment of the CVC was a big joke," he
said.

Somaiya claimed the documents have details of the
persons who recommended the name of Thomas and what notings
were made by the ministers.

He said "whether the Prime Minister was responsible,
or the then minister Prithviraj Chavhan or the person on whose
directives the appointment was carried out, one of them has to
take the responsibility and accept it."

Somaiya also demanded that details of IT raid at stud
farm owner Hasan Ali`s residence in Pune in 2007 should also
be made public.

"During IT raid it was revealed that kickback of Air
India aircraft purchase was transferred through hawala in the
accounts of NCP and Congress leaders by Ali," the BJP leader
alleged.

"Whatever the scam is it should get exposed before the
people of the country," he added.
