Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan on Monday told the Legislative Assembly that the Ram Pradhan committee findings and the Action Taken Report (ATR) into the 26/11 terror attacks would be tabled in the House for debate before the Monsoon session ends.
"Contrary to media reports, no clean chit has been given to anybody. Even Ram Pradhan has not made such a statement when he came to hand over the findings to me," Chavan said while intervening in the Lower House.
Earlier as the House met on the first day of the Monsoon session, which is the last in the tenure of the present government, Opposition parties were on their feet demanding discussion on the findings of the Pradhan panel.
Leader of Opposition Ramdas Kadam moved an adjournment notice seeking suspension of the Question Hour and taking up a debate on the Panel's findings.
Shiv Sena-BJP members shouted slogans demanding that Mohammed Kasab, the lone terrorist captured alive during the terror attacks, be hanged.
Chavan also condemned attempts by the Opposition to divide the police force by raising the "Marathi and non-Marathi" issue. His statement was in response to remarks by BJP leader Eknath Khadse that only Marathi police officers had come out on the field to fight the terrorists.
