New Delhi: BJP Friday accused the Congress of
indulging in "communal polarisation" on Babri Masjid issue
after CBI challenged in the Supreme Court the Allahabad High
Court order that dropped conspiracy charge against senior
leader L K Advani in the demolition case.
"Congress should not play politics over a matter which is
in the courts. It is indulging in communal polarisation and
trying to break the unity between the two communities.
Congress has always believed in ruling through a policy of
divide and rule," BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.
The CBI moved the Supreme Court today challenging an
Allahabad High Court order that dropped charges of criminal
conspiracy against top BJP leaders including L K Advani and
Murli Manohar Joshi in the Babri Masjid demolition case.
In its appeal, the agency said that the High Court had
not come to the right conclusion and the charges of criminal
conspiracy should be restored against them.
The High Court had on May 20 last year dismissed the CBI
plea seeking revival of criminal conspiracy charges against
top BJP and Sangh Parivar leaders which also included
Ashok Singhal, Giriraj Kishore, Vinay Katiyar, Vishnu Hari
Dalmiya, Sadhvi Rithambara and Mahant Avaidya Nath.
Hussain said BJP would not allow the designs of the
Congress to succeed and would also fight against "misuse" of
the investigating agencies.
