Rajya Sabha adjourns over Liberhan report

New Delhi, Nov 23 (Inditop.com) The leak of the report of the Liberhan Commission that probed the 1992 Babri mosque razing led to uproar in the Rajya Sabha Monday, leading to adjournment till noon.

Soon after Rajya Sabha convened, opposition leader Arun Jaitley of the Bharatiya Janata Party demanded a probe into the leak while other MPs from his party wanted the report tabled in the house.

Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Prithviraj Chauhan said Home Minister P. Chidambaram would come to the Rajya Sabha at noon to answer queries over the leak.

Hearing this, Vice President Mohammed Hamid Ansari, who was in the chair, fixed the discussion for noon. But this did not satisfy the opposition MPs who continued to raise slogans, forcing Ansari to adjourn the house.

A report in the Indian Express Monday said the commission has indicted former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee as well as Bharatiya Janata Party leaders L.K. Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi for their role in the demolition.
