Srikrishna report will be implemented: Dasmunsi

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: The Union government will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the Srikrishna report on the 1993 Mumbai riots is implemented.

This assurance was given by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Priyaranjan Dasmunsi in the Lok Sabha on Friday after question hour.

According to the Minister, United Progressive Alliance chairperson Sonia Gandhi was seriously pursuing the matter.

He also pointed out that Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh had already said that some recommendations of the report had been implemented. Action would be taken on the remaining recommendations.

The issue was raised by Communist Party of India (Marxist) member Hannan Mollah.

Stating that the report had not been implemented nine years after it was submitted, he said many policemen held guilty had been promoted instead of being punished.

Still others named in the report had been allowed to go scot-free.

This kind of inaction would send a wrong message to the minorities, Mr. Mollah said. His intervention drew support from the TDP.
