Chandigarh: Terming the leak of Liberhan report on Babri Masjid demolition a "conspiracy" against BJP, the party's youth wing on Saturday gave a call for week-long protests from November 30, during which it will burn the effigies of UPA government across the country.

Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha president Amit Thaker issued a statement here giving the protest call.

He alleged that the issue has been "politicised" by the Congress-led government, which has "not only brought to fore their unethical political mindset but has also resulted in hurting the sentiments of millions of Hindus".

The copies of Liberhan Commission report were either with Home Minister P Chidambaram or with Justice M S Liberhan himself, Thaker said adding, "Justice Liberhan has plainly refused leaking any part of report, which clearly shows that the report was leaked by Chidambaram himself as part of a well-charted conspiracy against the BJP."

Seeking Chidambaram's resignation for his alleged failure to maintain the secrecy of report, Thaker asked, "Why the report has suddenly jumped out of closets when Jharkhand polls are just round the corner?"

He said it is "shocking" that the report is "tight-lipped on the role of the head of the then union government, Narishma Rao, while it has indicted former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee without even serving him summons."
