Kalyan Singh ready to face charges in Babri mosque case
New Delhi, July 2 (ANI): Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh today said that he is ready to face charges levelled against him in the Liberhan Commission report.
Speaking to reporters here, Singh said, "I am ready to face whatever charges have been levelled against me. It is untrue that I did not co-operate in the case. I deposed as a witness, and so I expected to be questioned as one as well."
"The government should present the report in court as soon as possible," he added.
The Commission recorded the statements of senior BJP leaders L K Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Kalyan Singh during the extended proceedings.
The one man Commission headed by Justice M S Liberhan submitted its report to Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh in the presence of Home Minister P Chidambaram on Tuesday.
Established on December 16, 1992, ten days after the demolition of historical mosque, the panel headed by retired Justice M S Liberhan, got 48 extensions.
The probe panel, which took almost 17 years, has become one of the longest and costliest commissions with over Rs.7.5 crore having been already spent during this period.
The Commission was constituted by the Home Ministry and was mandated to inquire into the circumstances leading to the demolition of the Babri Mosque. (ANI)
