Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh said in Bhopal on Friday that the manner in which Union Carbide Corporation Chairman, Warren Anderson was allowed to leave Bhopal after the gas disaster in 1984 was not an issue at all.

"It does not matter whether Anderson left Bhopal by plane or train or walked to New Delhi," Singh told reporters in Bhopal.

He said that "the bigger issue was the relief and rehabilitation of the gas victims who are still suffering 25 years after the disaster."

When asked about the state Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's statement that Arjun Singh was not speaking truth about how Anderson left Bhopal, the Congress General Secretary said "before saying this Chouhan must tell how many truths he himself speaks."

Chouhan had claimed that an investment of Rs 3,000 crore had been made in Madhya Pradesh but no such thing was visible on the ground, he said.
