I don't see what's the point of punishing Arjun Singh. If u recall Kashmir separatism, we lost THOUSANDS and LAKHS of civilian lives not to mention thousands of troops who got martyred defending India against terrorism. However, today- the Govt is giving SPECIAL GUEST STATUS to people like Yaseen Malik or Gilani, who were the epicenters of Kashmiri separatism. Why? Because they have INFLUENCE.

In India if u have influence or money, u can get away w/ any crime that u commit. In a parallel case, there was a famous example of a man who was convicted just for petty theft like stealing a piece of bun from bake shop. He was to be held in prison for 3 weeks but he ended up spending 50 yrs in prison. ANd now the Govt of India just goes "oops sorry we held u overtime, your free to go!" when the guy is like in his 80s. He missed his entire youth life, and his middle aged life over a piece of a bun. Whereas someone like Andersen, Geelani and Malik are considered special guests even if they ha ...more

First of all Arjun Singh was the CM of MP when all this happened. Secindly Not only Arjun Singh but the supreme Court of India should be taken to task for watering down the clause applicable to these people. That's the reason Anderson was felicitated by the DC and the SP of Bhopal (on orders from top) toboard the flight for Delhi under their escort. This episode is so naked that you can't even say that "hamaam mein sabhi nange hain".

Arjun singh is a rascal no 1 , Government of India claimed that MIC gas had no adverse long term affect but my father went to Bhopal 2 days after incidence as a part of team of scientists and observed many other things,
The total number of people killed were in order of 20,000 bodies were stacked up in Hamidia hospital as there was no place to keep them on floor and finally they were criminated by putting diesel on open road, Arjun Singh government lowered the death toll to 800+ so that Union Carbide has less compensation to pay.

His interview on DD after Bhopal Gas tragedy was stage managed , Arjun Singh was shown wearing a gas mask inside union carbide plant whereas the DD reporter was withut any mask. There was a press reporter varadrajan who published some of the facts after Bhopal tragedy in press and subsequently disappeared it is said he was murdered by Arjun Singh's men.
This was an open secret , Dispite loosing elections 3 times in a row Congress made in HR minister and ...more

Why this has been revealed after 26 years and that also after the verdict of 8 Indians directors named accused in the disaster? If some people were knowing this and did not revealed, then they are also culprit because they concealed the information which could have lead to the arrest/detention of Mr. Anderson therefore they are also responsible and they should also be booked.
