What happened to my document, asks Chandra Shekhar

NEW DELHI, DEC. 13. The former Prime Minister, Mr. Chandra Shekhar, today said in the Lok Sabha that he has submitted certain sensational documents to the Speaker, Mr. G.M.C. Balayogi, and demanded that the Prime Minister and the Home Minister be asked what action was taken on them if they were aware of their contents.

Raising the issue after a bill seeking to reduce the Government's equity in public sector banks was introduced, he said the documents could lead to ``serious repercussions'' across the country.

Without disclosing their contents, he, however, said people ``outside'' knew about them. Maintaining that his statements and letters were treated with ``suspicion'' by the Government, Mr. Chandra Shekhar said that was why he had submitted the documents to the Speaker.

The former Prime Minister demanded that the Prime Minister, Mr. Atal Behari Vajpayee, and the Home Minister, Mr. L.K. Advani, should be called by the Speaker and asked whether they were aware of the contents of the documents. ``In case they knew, it should be found out what action has been taken by the Government,'' he added.
