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

On Tuesday, appearing for the Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board, Kapil Sibal requested the Supreme Court to set the next hearing on the case after March 2019.

However, the demand was brushed aside by the top court as it fixed February 8, 2018 for commencing final hearing in the case. Slamming Congress, he further said, "If a road to solution is coming let it come.All should work towards a peaceful solution. but they (Congress party) are trying to create hurdles". In a statement to news agencies, Haji Mehboob, a litigant, said he was a member of the UP Sunni Wakf Board, and that Sibal was "our lawyer", but that his plea in court was "wrong". "You want to keep the issue unresolved for political gain and losses in the elections?"

The Congress hit back saying the BJP chief is not even aware of the history of the case and insisted that the party will abide by the court's verdict pointing out that it should be lawyer's personal choice who he wants to represent in the court.

Swamy further said that the hearing for Babri Masjid-Ram Janmbhoomi had begun where both parties had to put their positions before court, but Kapil Sibal said that the court can not proceed since they have not received all the documents.

"The Congress stand has always been clear, that Ayodhya case will be decided by SC, same has been said by the Law Minister many times". We want a speedy hearing and so do people of this country as they want a Ram temple soon. Reacting to Shah's comments against senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal representing the Waqf Board in the dispute, Surjewala said: "BJP leader and finance minister Arun Jaitley represented the American company responsible for the Bhopal gas tragedy in which 4,000 persons lost their lives".

The Waqf Board said it wanted speedy justice in the case and was not in favour of deferment.

To a question on Sunni Waqf Board's position, Rehmani said that he has not had any talk with it in this regard.

"Sibal just gave his arguments on the political level, as they will lose the elections if they lose this case", Swamy said.
