Accusing the Congress of playing "dirty politics", the BJP on Monday demanded suspension of Question Hour in both Houses of Parliament and a debate on the "selective leaks" on Liberhan Commission report on Babri Masjid demolition.

Leader of Opposition L K Advani submitted a notice to Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar while Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley gave a notice to Chairman Hamid Ansari in this regard, senior party leader Sushma Swaraj said.

"We demand the suspension of Question Hour in both Houses and a debate on the selective leaks on Liberhan Commission report. We have been demanding that since the report has been submitted, it should be tabled in Parliament at the earliest," Swaraj told reporters in New Delhi.

The move comes against the backdrop of a media report claiming that former prime minister A B Vajpayee, Advani and BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi were indicted by the Liberhan Commission which probed the Babri Masjid demolition on December 6, 1992.

Party spokesperson Prakash Javadekar alleged that the ruling Congress was playing "dirty politics".

"The government is duty-bound to table the full report along with the Action Taken Report in Lok Sabha. But instead of doing it, the government is resorting to politics of selective leaks," he alleged.
