The Ram Pradhan committee report on the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack was not even shown to Governor S C Jamir, Opposition leader Ramdas Kadam said on Thursday.
“The Shiv Sena-BJP delegation met the governor at Raj Bhavan. When we requested him to ask the government make the report public, he said even he was yet to see the report,” Kadam said.
“Why is the state government hiding the report? People have a right to know what is there in the report,” Kadam added.
He alleged no action was taken against the then director general of police, A.N. Roy, for his lapses during the terror attacks.
However, a Raj Bhavan spokesperson said Jamir had been quoted out of context. “The governor had said even he had not seen the report. But he was of the opinion that sensitive issues regarding security need not be discussed publicly. It also affects the morale of the police, he told the delegation,” the spokesperson said.
Kadam was leading a 20-member delegation of Sena-BJP leaders to demand the cancellation of suspension of their three Legislative Council members.
The three MLCs, two from Sena and one from BJP, were suspended on June 16 for creating ruckus and disrupting proceedings of the House over the report.
