Joshi demands setting up of JPC to probe Liberhan report leak
New Delhi: Senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi on Tuesday demanded setting up of a Joint Parliamentary Committee to probe the leakage of the Liberhan Commission report to the media.
He also said that Home Minister P Chidambaram must own moral responsibility for the leakage.
"Since it is a matter of Parliamentary privilege, JPC is the only appropriate authority which can find out who leaked the contents of report, and how it was leaked," he told reporters outside Parliament House.
To a question on whether Chidambaram should resign over the issue, he said if the report was leaked by the Home Ministry, he should step down. "Still he should take moral responsibility as it is a lapse," Joshi added.
