The Ram Pradhan Committee report on Mumbai terror attacks may be tabled before a committee of legislators, comprising of ruling and Opposition members, that is likely to be formed by the Maharashtra Government.
A core group meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, was held here today to discuss the "leakage" of the
report after both Houses were adjourned six times over the issue.
Deputy Chief Minister Chhagan Bhujbal, Home Minister R R Patil, Energy Minister Ajit Pawar, Leader of Opposition
Eknath Khadse and Shiv Sena group leader Subhash Desai were among the members who attended the meeting.
The ruling parties proposed to set up a committee of Legislature members from both the sides who would discuss the
Pradhan committee report. "The committee would study the report and express its opinion on it," a legislator, who
attended the meeting, said.
The Opposition parties have not accepted the proposal yet, as they would discuss it at the party level. About 15
members from each side would be in the committee, he said.
Some members of Opposition parties are not ready to accept the proposal, as they want the Government to table the
report in the House, the legislator said.
However, the Government is also very keen to keep some parts of the report secret, as it may affect the security of
the state and the 26/11 trial, which is going on in Mumbai, he said.
