By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, June 9 � The ruling Congress Wednesday said the government should make every effort to extradite from the US Warren Anderson, the CEO of Union Carbide when the Bhopal gas tragedy took place in 1984, report Agencies.

�The Congress is of the firm opinion that the extradition process should be completed and he (Anderson) should be brought back. We hope government will take it to its logical conclusion,� Congress spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan said. She asked the government to take all steps to ensure that the perpetrators of the tragedy had been brought to book.

Meanwhile, the Madhya Pradesh government has decided to file an appeal against the �disappointing� verdict in the Bhopal gas tragedy case, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said today.

The BJP government in the State will constitute a committee to study the legal aspects before going in for the appeal, he said.
