PM alleges Congress was responsible for the matter not being heard in SC, I being representing one of the parties, the Congress party. Which also he doesn’t know because Congress isn’t a party in it, nor is BJP. I was representing a stakeholder.
I’ve not appeared in SC b/w Jan-Nov’18. When matter came up in October, CJI said this is not priority. So, does PM have courage to make statement against judiciary. This only shows PM wants to rake this up for purposes of election, for making political capital out of it.
Sibal further accused the Prime Minister of raking up the issue for political gains ahead of the impending state assembly polls and the all-important Lok Sabha elections scheduled for next year.
Earlier on Sunday, Prime Minister Modi, while addressing a rally in Rajasthan’s Alwar district, had accused the Congress of interfering in the Supreme Court’s proceedings on the Ram Temple” Babri Masjid-Ram Temple case, saying that their Rajya Sabha leaders intimidated Supreme Court judges with the threat of impeachment if they didn’t stall the case until the General Elections of next year.
