The Opposition on Monday created uproar in the Maharashtra assembly demanding tabling of the report of Ram Pradhan Commission, which probed the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, prompting the Speaker to adjourn the House three times.
As soon as the House commenced, Opposition Leader Eknath Khadse (BJP), Shiv Sena group leader Subhash Desai, Girish Bapat (BJP) and others raised the issue and demanded tabling of the report and wanted Home Minister R R Patil to make a statement in this regard.
Patil assured the lower House that an all party committee would be constituted and the Pradhan Committee report will be placed before the committee as in the larger interest of the state, it would not be appropriate to table the report and make it public given that there are many sensitive issues mentioned in it.
He said if the report is made public, it would only benefit the terror organisations who would come to know the recommendations of the Pradhan Panel report and its findings.
Opposition then insisted that government should admit that the 'leaked' report was a genuine copy of the original one which was given to the ruling alliance.
Due to the pandemonium created by the Opposition, the House was adjourned for 10 minutes. It was then adjourned for 15 minutes again followed by a third adjournment of 10 minutes.
