New Delhi, Dec 8(ANI): Deputy Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha and senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday slammed the findings of the Liberhan Commission tabled in the Lok Sabha.

Swaraj expressed her dissenting views during a debate on the Liberhan Commission report in the Lok Sabha.

The one-man Commission had looked into the circumstances that led to the demolition of Babri Masjid, which sparked some of the worst communal riots since Partition in 1947.

Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram had tabled the long-awaited report that has accused several BJP leaders of a role in the 1992 destruction of the medieval mosque, dealing a blow to an already-weak opposition.

Slamming the findings of the report, Swaraj termed the report as baseless and expressed anguish for wrongly blaming former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee.

"I ask the honourable Home Minister to dismiss this report. If this report remains to exist then it will provoke communal riots throughout the country," Sushma Swaraj said.

She further mentioned that the report was not a judicial one, but a political report by an opportunist.

"The report gave clean chit to Narasimha Rao and held Atal Behari Vajpayee guilty. I said that I would prove my allegations. This report is totally baseless and contrary to the evidences," Swaraj added. (ANI)
