PM Modi :Congress connecting 'Ayodhya Ram Temple' with 2019 polls

BJP, Cong joust in public court

Kapil Sibal

Haji Mehboob's remarks lend credence to the Bharatiya Janata Party's allegation that Sibal behaved as an agent for the Congress party in the Supreme Court rather than as an agent for the Sunni Waqf Board who was seeking a resolution of the long-standing dispute.

Sibal, former Union minister and senior Congress leader, is representing the Sunni Waqf Board in the apex court in the Babri Masjid demolition case. The Prime Minister said that while Mr Sibal, "was arguing - which is his right- for the Babri Masjid, is it right for him to say postpone hearing till 2019?"

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday slams Congress over its leader and lawyer Kapil Sibal's plea in the Supreme Court to defer hearing in the Ayodhya case till after the 2019 general elections. The BJP and VHP used the Ram Mandir issue in the 1990s as a means to achieve their political targets. PM Modi said while addressing a rally in Gujarat's Dhandhuka.

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi kicks off second day of his election campaign from Dehgam, Gandhinagar district. The Congress must clarify if Sibal is representing it or the Sunni Waqf Board?

Creek fire shuts down portion of 210 Freeway, traffic being diverted
The fire first broke out around 4 a.m. near Little Tujunga Canyon Road and rapidly spread as a result of Santa Ana winds. Classes are canceled today at Los Angeles Mission College due to the mandatory evacuations, officials said.


Hitting back at the BJP in an impromptu press conference, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala distanced the party from Mr. Sibal's arguments on Tuesday in the Supreme Court.

"When the triple talaq matter was in Supreme Court, the government had to put their affidavit, newspapers commented that Modi will remain silent because of UP polls". "Congress should clear its stand on this", he said.

The 16th century Babri mosque was demolished in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, 25 years ago today by Hindu karsevaks or volunteers who claimed that it was built where a temple marking the birthplace of Lord Ram had stood.

However, the demand was brushed aside by the top court as it fixed February 8, 2018 for commencing final hearing in the case. "The Congress party is not at all responsible about its members appearing as legal counsels in a case in his/her personal capacity".
