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

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

Somaiya claimed the documents have details of the persons who recommended the name of Thomas and notings that were made by the ministers.

He added, "Whether the Prime Minister was responsible, or the then minister Prithviraj Chavhan or the person on whose directives the appointment was carried out, one of them has to take the responsibility and accept it."
