Ramanathapuram, Sep 21: All-India Anti Terrorist Front Chairman M S Bitta has demanded a white paper on the ''controversial'' affidavit the Centre had filed before the Supreme Court on the Ramsethu issue.

Talking to newspersons here last evening, he said the Centre should immediately issue a white paper to apprise the public on the affidavit, which was withdrawn. ''Though it was not a deliberate mistake on part of the Centre, it will definitely affect the electoral fortunes of the Congress,'' Mr Bitta, also a former president of the Indian Youth Congress said.

Condemning the remarks of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi on Lord Ram and Ramsethu, he said his remarks questioning the historicity of Lord Ram had hurt the sentiments of the people.

He appealed to the Congress to ''reconsider'' its alliance with the ruling DMK in Tamil Nadu, as it would affect party's electoral prospects.

He requested the Centre to work out an alternative route to implement the Sethu Samudram Project, to save the Ramar Sethu from demolition.
