New Delhi, Nov 24 : Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Murli Manohar Joshi on Tuesday demanded formation of a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to investigate leakage of Liberhan Commission report, which blames BJP leaders for their role in the destruction of an ancient mosque that had sparked widespread riots.
Addressing the media in the national capital, Joshi said that complete investigation should be done about the leakage of the report and Union Government should take the moral responsibility for the same.
“The basic thing to analyze is that how the report was leaked. Who leaked it and why it was leaked, the Government especially the Union Home Minister should take the entire moral responsibility for the report leakage. We demand a Joint Parliamentary Committee
(JPC) should be formed to investigate and announce who leaked the report and why,” Joshi said.
The Liberhan Commission, the one-man commission headed by Justice M S Liberhan, probed into the circumstances leading to the demolition of the Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992.
A leading English daily of India reported ysterday that top BJP leaders, Atal Behari Vajpayee, Lal Krishna Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi, the then Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Kalyan Singh have been found guilty of Babri Masjid demolition.
Earlier on Monday, leaders of the opposition had created an uproar demanding immediate tabling of the report as a newspaper had already published the purported findings, indicting some of the prominent members of BJP.
The report was tabled by the Home Minister in the Rajya Sabha today. (ANI)
