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

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

Sibal, a Congress MP and lawyer, is representing the Sunni Waqf Board in a legal dispute over the matter in the Supreme Court and yesterday sought deferment of the case until after the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday lashed out at the Congress for linking the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi case to the 2019 elections, making Ayodhya one of the talking points of his election campaign in Ahmedabad.

Modi was referring to the lawyer Kapil Sibal's plea in the Supreme Court on Tuesday asking that the case not be heard before the 2019 elections because its outcome could have a bearing on that poll.

However, the Supreme Court bench, headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and Justices Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer adjourned the hearing in the Ayodhya case for February 8, 2018. "We want to know whether or not the Congress party wants a speedy verdict on the Ram Temple". "Whenever the Congress wants to take a different stand on an issue, it keeps Kapil Sibalji in the forefront".

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.

"As far as Ram Mandir is concerned (Modiji), it will be built when Lord Ram wants it to be built", said Sibal.

"Congress" stand has always been clear, that the Ayodhya matter will be heard and decided by the Supreme Court.

Reacting to Sibal's contention, Amit Shah has asked the Congress and Rahul Gandhi to clarify their stand on this count. The BJP is playing the role of "Manthara', raking up Kapil Sibal's stand on the hearing", Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said, while addressing the media.

"Why does he have to link a Ram mandir (temple) with the elections. And that the court will decide", Sibal added. Congress leader Anand Sharma said that Prime Minister was diverting the issue from lack of development in Gujarat. "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.
