Modi lacerates Sibal over Ayodhya case deferment plea

Kapil Sibal

"While representing the Sunni Waqf Board in the Ramjanambhoomi-Babri Masjid case on Tuesday, Sibal urged the court to take up the matter after 2019 general elections as "the case was being used to polarise the electorate with an eye on the polls".

This comes a day after Congress leader and senior lawyer Kapil Sibal asked the top court for a July 2019 date for the next hearing of the long-standing Ayodhya matter, citing political ramifications owing to the general elections in 2019.

Under attack, Sibal claimed he did not represent the Sunni Waqf Board in the Ayodhya case in the Supreme Court, and mounted a counteroffensive against Modi, saying he should have checked the facts before criticising him.

Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi trained his guns at Kapil Sibal and the Congress and blamed Sibal for politicising the issue.

"But you dare say that the case should not be heard till 2019 elections". His statement in the court was wrong.

On the campaign trail in Gujarat, Modi recalled how his government chose to oppose "triple talaq" in the Supreme Court risking a possible backlash in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.

"Yesterday in the SC, a Congress MP Kapil Sibal was arguing for the Babri Masjid". "Do you want to keep the issue unresolved for political gain or loss in the elections?" he asked the Congress. Indeed, even in this instance, Sibal, Rajeev Dhavan, and Dushyant Dave were appearing for the litigants, and the Waqf Board could be backing off now because it doesn't want to be embroiled in a controversy, said a lawyer appearing for one of the litigants on condition of anonymity.

In the order, Sibal's name featured as a lawyer for the UP Sunni Waqf Board. "Now, the Congress links Ram mandir with the elections. Congress should answer." the PM said. The same has been said by the Law Minister many times.

He also said that the true character of the party was revealed the way one of its leaders pitched to extend the dates of the Ayodhya matter hearing. "They are least bothered about the nation". "It is our appeal to the soon-to-be-crowned Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who is visiting temples in Gujarat these days, to clear his stand on the Shri Ram Mandir and explain to the people why is Sibal praying for a delayed verdict just when the translation work of voluminous court documents is over", he said.

"Can decisions be held to ransom for electoral gains and losses or should they be taken for the benefit of the entire country?"
