Chidambaram must quit: BJP

NEW DELHI: Squarely blaming Union Home Minister P Chidambaram for the leak of the Liberhan Commission report, the BJP on Tuesday demanded his resignation.
Lok Sabha deputy leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj charged that Chidambaram was personally responsible for the leak of the report and not just his Ministry. “Chidambaram should own moral responsibility and resign before the debate. He cannot escape responsibility by merely calling the leak unfortunate,” she said....
... The BJP has pressed into service the party’s best legal brains like Arun Jaitley, Satya Pal Jain, counsel of Advani in the Babri Masjid demolition cases and in the Liberhan Commission, and Sushma Swaraj to search for grounds on which the party could decline the report.
The party has declared that the principles of natural justice were violated by indicting former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee. “The principles of natural justice demanded that Vajpayee should have at least been summoned and his version heard, before commenting on him,” party sources said.
