Former BJP leader Kalyan Singh, who was the UP Chief Minister when Babri Masjid was demolished, on Thursday asked the government to table at the earliest the Liberhan Commission report in Parliament along with the Action Taken Report.

"The government should table the report at the earliest along with ATR. The Commission has submitted the report after a delay (over 16 years) and the government should not delay it any further," Singh told reporters outside Parliament House.

Singh, whose BJP government was, dismissed after the demolition, said, "We are ready for a debate."

He wondered why the government was still non- committal on the issue of tabling the report in this session of Parliament.

Singh, who is an independent member of the Lok Sabha, said that he was the last witness before the Commission and had appeared before it two years ago.

"Earlier, the Commission was calling me an accused. I told them that I will go there only as a witness and not an accused," he said.

The former CM said, "We will reply to each every point raised in the report".
