New Delhi, Nov 23 (ANI): Both houses of Parliament were adjourned till 2 p.m. on Monday following an opposition uproar over the leakage of the Justice Liberhan Commission's report to the media.

Earlier in the day, a daily published a report quoting the Liberhan Commission as saying that former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Leader of Oppostion L.K. Advani and former Union Minister Murli Manohar Joshi as being responsible for the demolition of the Babri Masjid on December 6,1992.

Answering a short discussion in the Rajya Sabha Union Home Minister Chidambaram assured the house that no one from his ministry had spoken to any journalist about the report.

He said: "It's a voluminous report, it takes time to translate from English to Hindi. And it is taking time."

"Whatever the house decides, the Deputy Chairman or the Chairman decides I am ready to follow the same," he added.

Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitely and senior BJP leader M.Venkaiah Naidu questioned the authenticity of the media report saying "If no one from the Home Ministry leaked the report, then how it reached to the media?"

"The leakage of the report has questioned the credibility of the house," they added.

Naidu demanded the immediate tabling of the report in parliament. He also questioned the government's dilatory tactics. (ANI)
