Babri Masjid demolition was a planned operation by trained karsevaks under project name “Operation Janmabhoomi”; the then PM PV Narasimha Rao, LK Advani, Kalyan Singh, Bal Thackarey and several other leaders had clear knowledge of the plan and action, said Cobrapost.com.
The associate editor of cobrapost traced and interviewed 23 persons who were closely aware of and involved with the planning and execution of the whole mission. Names of Sadhavi Ritambhara, Sadhavi Uma Bharti, Vinay Katiyar, and Kalyan Singh figure in the list. Of these, while the Liberhan Commission has indicted 15, the CBI has named 19 accused in its chargesheet. In all, 40 are facing trial in a CBI court.
Cobrapost says that even the recruitees did not know the actual details of the plan till about one month before the incident. In June 1992, Bhajrangdal has recruited about 38 persons from Sarkhej region in Gujarat and conducted a military style physical training and the ideological washup was conducted by the likes of Acharya Giriraj Kishore, Acharya Dharmendra, Dr. Praveen Togadia, Jaibhan Pawaiya and Ashok Singhal at this camp.
After the camp, drills were conducted at Neela Teela of Ayodhya. A grouping of 1200 karsevaks from different regions of the country were gathered under the name “Laxman Sena”and were given specific training to climb tall structures using ropes etc. “Jai Sheshavatar”was the war cry they had chosen. Even a suicide squad was formed. Once the slogan was raised three times, the squads were told to not listen to any body, how ever big they are, until the task is accomplished.
A B plan to dynamite the Masjid was also drafted. Even petrol boms were prepared, under the hold of Bihar Bhajrangdal team.
Apparently, the then UP CM Kalyan Singh had made up his mind to resign from the post by the morning of 6th December 1992, but senior BJP leaders like H Seshadri and Murli Manohar Joshi forced him to wait till the plan is carried out, he was even kept captive by the leadership till the demolition was over.
The BJP has demanded the EC to stop the publication of the cobrapost sting operation.
