Addressing a Press conference at Ahmedabad, Shah said a surprising stand was taken in the SC by Congress leader and Sunni Waqf Board lawyer Sibal that hearing should be deferred till after 2019 Lok Sabha polls. The Congress leader justified his stand saying 'the case has ramification on the polity of India, '.
Senior Congress leader and lawyer Kapil Sibal on Wednesday clarified that he never represented Sunni Waqf Board in Supreme Court during the Ayodhya hearing on Tuesday.
Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi trained his guns at Kapil Sibal and the Congress and blamed Sibal for politicising the issue. It said it had not issued any instruction to Sibal to seek shifting of hearing till after the general elections. He is entitled to do that but is it right for him to say postpone hearing till 2019?
"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".
"Rahul ji is visiting temples in Gujarat, on the other hand Sibal wants to delay the Ram Janmbhoomi case".
"Yesterday in the SC, a Congress MP Kapil Sibal was arguing (which is his right) for the Babri Masjid".

In the order, Sibal's name featured as a lawyer for the UP Sunni Waqf Board. "Or, is it the case that the board and the Congress are working in tandem?" he asked. "A representative of Sunni Waqf Board said that we wish that the issue is decided at the earliest by the courts".
Modi, however, noted the Congress later said the views expressed by Sibal were his own and not of the party.
He further added, "Now Congress is linking Ram Mandir with elections".
The Waqf Board said it wanted speedy justice in the case and was not in favour of deferment. Reacting swiftly to BJP president Amit Shah's allegations on the Congress's stand on Ram temple in Ayodhya, Randeep Surjewala and Pawan Khera, the national spokespersons of the Congress, said that the Congress stand on the Ram temple was similar to the BJP's - the readiness to accept the verdict of the Supreme Court.
"Why does he have to link a Ram Mandir (temple) with elections".
"Can decisions be held to ransom for electoral gains and losses or should they be taken for the benefit of the entire country?" Modi said now he understands why the Congress kept many issues unresolved, without elaborating but implying that it was done to derive political mileage.
