Raipur, Nov 8 (UNI) Former Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Ajit Jogi today said the Congress would issue white paper on anti-naxalite campaign 'Salwa Judum' and scrap the Public Security Act on coming to power.

Talking to UNI here last night, Mr Jogi said the party would issue white paper on matters like expenses occurred under the Salwa Judum campaign and its effectiveness. Public had the right to know whether their money was being properly utilised.

He said the Public Security Act, which came into force two years back, has failed to curb naxalism. He claimed that he possessed evidence action was being taken against innocent people, who were being grinded between police and naxalites.

Mr Jogi alleged that the BJP and the RSS had hidden agenda of preparing its cadre in tribal areas under the garb of the 'Salwa Judum' campaign. He had informed this earlier. Now, the Chief Minister had admitted that the BJP had emerged stronger in tribal areas due to the Salwa Judum.

He said the Congress would close 'Salwa Judum' relief camps and help people to return to their homes besides ensuring safety in their villages.

Mr Jogi said the BJP had made him centre of poll campaign. A similar attempt was made previous time when the BJP had published a book against him showing him in a police uniform and wielding a stick. However, the BJP Government failed to initiate inquiry in any matter let alone proving the charges.

He said public would vote against the BJP for its rampant corruption and bringing the state in the league of backward states.

He added that he wanted people to compare his three-year-rule with the five-year-role of the BJP.
