Indicted by the Liberhan Commission for his role in the demolition, BJP leader Vinay Katiyar sounded unperturbed on Monday when HT spoke to him. Excerpts from the interview:

Indicted by the Commission do you repent Dec 6 now?
Let the report be tabled... You are asking question on the basis of a report whose authenticity is yet to be verified. But even if it were true, I do not repent my association at all. I am proud of the demolition though neither me nor any other leader had any role in it. Demolition-day was the happiest one in my life.

But you were present that day?
Yes, very much.

What happens now?
All parties in order to attract the Muslim vote will accuse the BJP of inciting passions. That suits us fine for that would mean Hindus would once again look towards the BJP.

What do you make of the report now?
It has no significance...It is a Congress ploy to deflect attention from its failure on various fronts.
