As decided at a meeting of party leaders on Tuesday, the Lok Sabha will discuss on December 1 the Liberhan Commission report on the demolition of the Babri Masjid.

The demand for discussion was made by the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Sushma Swaraj at the Business Advisory Committee meeting and accepted by other parties and the government. Apparently, no subject for discussion has been listed for December 2.

Although the Commission report is expected to be taken up under rule 193 for a short duration discussion, members from all parties would like to speak on the contentious issue and therefore it has been decided to keep the schedule flexible, lest the debate spill into the next day.

It is expected to be a no-holds-barred affair as the parties prepare to discuss the 1992 Ayodhya incident that many leaders feel affected Indian polity as no other since the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi.
