Gujarat elections: Why Congress is linking Ram Mandir to polls, asks Modi

Sibal had on Tuesday urged the court to take up the 25-year-old matter up only after July 2019, stating that the case was being used to polarise the electorate with an eye on the polls.

Sibal had in the apex court said that the Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute should be heard after the 2019 general elections, which triggered a major political storm.

Meanwhile, PM Narendra Modi accused the Congress of linking the Ram Mandir issue with Lok Sabha elections.

The Congress hit back saying the BJP chief is not even aware of the history of the case and insisted that the party will abide by the court's verdict pointing out that it should be lawyer's personal choice who he wants to represent in the court. Amit Shah and the Prime Minister said I represented Sunni Waqf Board.

The UP Sunni Wakf Board was quicker to dissociate itself from not just Sibal, but also Mehboob. I do not know on whose behalf the counsel for the Muslims appearing in the apex court, Kapil Sibal had stated this.

Swamy further said that the hearing for Babri Masjid-Ram Janmbhoomi had begun where both parties had to put their positions before court, but Kapil Sibal said that the court can not proceed since they have not received all the documents.

"Yes, Kapil Sibal is our lawyer, but he is also related to a political party". His statement in the court yesterday was wrong. "We have got nothing to do with his statement". "We want that the case is solved at the earliest", he stressed.

However, the demand was brushed aside by the top court as it fixed February 8, 2018 for commencing final hearing in the case. "He is entitled to do that, but is it right for him to say postpone hearing till 2019?" Attacking Shah, Surjewala said, "Will the BJP, RSS and Amit Shah tell the truth of allegations made by Nirmohi Akhada against the VHP in relation to a Rs 1,400 crore scam in the name of Ram temple?" "Modi government's law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has himself said in Parliament and outside Parliament that the BJP will accept the Supreme Court order on the Ram temple construction", he said. "Construction of Ram Temple is part of BJP manifesto in 2014, court should not fall into the trap", Sibal had said.
