Arjun Singh in 'Catch-22 situation'
Arjun Singh has virtually locked himself away in his heavily-guarded residence on Akbar Road ever since the Bhopal gas verdict.
Singh, who is now hogging the headlines for his alleged role in letting then Union Carbide boss Warren Anderson out of the country over two decades ago, decided to give a skip to a recent conference on Palestine, his pet cause. Panthers Party chief Bhim Singh, who had just returned from Palestine, had hosted the conference where Arjun Singh, who was chief minister of Madhya Pradesh at the time of the Dec 2-3, 1984, Bhopal gas tragedy, was expected as chief guest.
Singh, however, chose to stay away as the seasoned politician knew that sound byte-hungry journalists must be waiting to pounce on him. "He is in a Catch-22 situation," said Bhim Singh lamely, in a bid to placate waiting television reporters.
