apology needed from Mr Vajpayee for betraying his Oath of Office



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Please help make the Manifesto better, or accept it, and propagate it!
---------------------------------------------------------------------
All Indian organisations and individuals should support the following demand 
for an intervention by the President, and for an apology from Mr Vajpayee,
and 
should urge evryone to stop dealing with Mr Vajpayee as long as he does not 
issue such an apology.

Whether he can and will dismiss the ministers is entirely a political matter: 
if there is enough support for the move within and outside India, he will
have 
to do so, but that, I repeat, is a political matter.  

The apology relates to a matter which has resulted in his betraying the 
Constitution of India which he swore to uphold when he took the office of
Prime 
Minister.  Like every other citizen he can follow due process of law in
seeking 
to change the Constitution, but if he violates the Constitution or any other 
law, he should suffer the penalty for it.  

Given Indian realities, it is extremely unlikely that he will be impeached
(as 
he should be) but he should be forced at least to offer an apology.

PRESIDENT INTERVENTION SOUGHT:
The All India Babri Masjid Re-building Committee (AIBMRC) demanded a public
apology from the Prime Minister, Mr. Atal Behari Vajpayee, for his
statement on Ram temple and dismissal of charge-sheeted Union Ministers, L
K Advani, Mr. Murli Manohar Joshi and Ms. Uma Bharti, in the Babri Masjid
demolition case. Seeking the President, Mr. K R Narayanan's intervention in
the matter, the AIBMRC in a letter requested him to refer all the disputes
of Babri Masjid - Ram Janmabhoomi to the Supreme Court under Article 138-B
of the Constitution for a final, time bound and binding decision. (HINDU,
14 Dec.)
