Liberhan findings vague, uncertain: Advani's counsel

'The findings of the commission are vague and uncertain. They are targeting L.K. Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and other leaders without proper evidence,' Jain, who represented Advani before the Liberhan Commission, told mediapersons here.
He added that the commission's report was deliberately delayed from being tabled in parliament by the government to suit its political interests.
'The report itself looks like a thesis against the BJP and RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh),' said Jain, a former BJP Lok Sabha MP.
He said that the BJP was fully prepared to rebut the findings of the report when discussion on the issue begins in parliament Dec 1.
He said that former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee has been found 'culpable' in the demolition despite neither being called for any hearing nor any evidence being collected against him.
Jain wondered how then prime minister P.V. Narasimha Rao could be let off by the Liberhan Commission despite evidence being recorded against him for inaction.
Jain also sought that Home Minister P. Chidambaram resign from his post on moral grounds following the 'selective leak' of the Liberhan report by the home ministry before it was tabled in parliament. ...
