“I don’t know whether it goes in favour or against…. but one thing is certain that the timing of presenting the report is intriguing,” he said.

Demanding immediate action on the report, Joshi said that the government should table it before Parliament, the budget session of which is starting on Thursday.

“We will ask the government to take action immediately and place it before Parliament so that it can be discussed,” he said.

Inside Story

Sources within the BJP said that Murli Manohar Joshi is unhappy with the commision’s findings and with the fact that LK Advani has been let off lightly.

Sources confirmed that Joshi has conveyed his unhappiness to the senior leadership and is feeling vitimised by the findings of the Liberhan Commission.

BJP veterans L K Advani and M M Joshi, along with former party leaders Uma Bharti and Kalyan Singh, are accused in the Babri mosque demolition case. Some leaders in the party feel the government may try to pin down BJP during the discussion in Parliament on the report. “Congress may decide to go after us with a vengeance,” said a senior MP.
