New Delhi, June 30 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said that the Liberhan Ayodhya Commission submitted its report after a long delay.
"It would have been good if such a long time had not been taken. It took 17 years for the Commission to submit its report. There should not have been such a long delay in such a sensitive matter. This (not delaying) is in the country's interest," he said.
Singh further said that party leaders who are accused in the Babri mosque demolition co-operated fully with the Commission.
The Commission recorded the statements of senior party leaders L K Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Kalyan Singh during the extended proceedings.
Earlier in the day, the Commission submitted its report by retired Justice M S Liberhan Liberhan in presence of Home Minister P. Chidambaram.
The contents of the report were not immediately known.
The Commission, constituted by the Home Ministry, was mandated to inquire into the circumstances leading to the demolition of the Babri Mosque. (ANI)
