Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are not serious about the Ayodhya Ram temple but are just using it to “exploit emotions” of the people at the time of every election.
Sibal, a prominent lawyer who appeared in the case for the Sunni Wakf Board till December 2017, rejected the allegations of the Prime Minister that Congress lawyers were stalling the resolution of the case that had been going on for over two decades.
“They are not interested. They are again fooling the people. This is yet another ‘jumla’ (gimmick). (They are) exploiting emotions of the people,” he told media while targeting Modi and the BJP over the politically and religiously sensitive issue which is now under the Supreme Court’s consideration.
