The Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday said it will make public the documents relating to the appointment of P. J. Thomas as the Central Vigilance Commissioner by next week.

“We have all the papers related to the appointment of Thomas as the CVC which will be exposed before the people by next week...We are waiting for the Parliament to get over,” BJP national secretary Kirit Somaiya told reporters in Lucknow.

“On the basis of the papers in possession, I would like to say that appointment of the CVC was a big joke,” he said.

Mr. Somaiya claimed the documents have details of the persons who recommended the name of Mr. Thomas.

He said “whether the Prime Minister was responsible, or the then minister Prithviraj Chavan or the person on whose directives the appointment was carried out, one of them has to take the responsibility and accept it.”

Mr. Somaiya also demanded that details of the I-T raid at stud farm owner Hasan Ali’s residence in Pune in 2007 should also be made public.

“Whatever the scam is it should get exposed before the people of the country,” he added.
