New Delhi: The Congress Tuesday said the government will act on the recommendations of the Liberhan Commission and a supplementary charge sheet will be filed "if any new details emerge after the police investigation". It also said that the report showed the "true character" of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

 

Answering questions about the Action Taken Report (ATR) filed by the government in parliament, Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi said the ATR could only be based on the recommendations of the commission.

 

"But it (recommendations) is the basis for further investigation by police of any new details emerging. Supplementary charge sheet can be and will be filed," he told reporters here.

 

The Congress also slammed the BJP, saying the Liberhan Commission report "once again shows the true character, identity and thinking" of that party.

 

"It is a sad, sordid, sorry, saddening saga of brazen cheap politics, which does not care for the life, liberty and property of aam aadmi (common man)," Singhvi said.

 

He said the commission report only gave details of the events people already knew about and BJP leaders now stand condemned in the eyes of people.

 

"They have been captured by candid camera. This face is their past, also their present and their promise for future, specially when they are out of power," he said.

 

Asked about former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's name appearing in the list of culpable persons, he said the BJP leader had the option to go to court to get the inclusion of his name quashed. "If he does not do so, the report stands," Singhvi said.

 

The Congress spokesman added that Vajpayee was accountable for his guilt of association.

 

"He should have changed his friends or his party and could not have said that he had no knowledge (of the events leading to demolition of mosque)," Singhvi said.

 

Singhvi said that the BJP leaders should have at least owned up to the mistake after the demolition but all those involved in events were eulogised.

 

Answering queries on the inability of the then Narasimha Rao government at the centre in preventing the demolition of the mosque, he said even the Supreme Court had been misled by the solemn affirmation given by then Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh.

 

Singhvi also sought to contrast the indicted BJP leaders with his party's treatment of Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar - Congress leaders who faced charges in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and were denied tickets in the last Lok Sabha elections following a public uproar.

 

The Liberhan panel report, which was tabled in parliament Tuesday, has indicted members of the Sangh Parivar for demolition of the 16th century mosque in Ayodhya. The vandalism and destruction triggered communal riots across the country.
