New Delhi, Dec 6 (UNI) Accusing Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi of supporting those opposing the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya, BJP Spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao on Wednesday called Mr Gandhi a ‘Babar Bhakt’ and a ‘Kin of Khilji’.
”Rahul Gandhi has teamed up with Owaisi’s, Jilanis to oppose Ram temple in Ayodhya. Rahul Gandhi is certainly a ‘Babar Bhakt’ & a ‘Kin of Khilji’.
”Babar destroyed Ram temple & Khilji plundered Somnath. Nehru dynasty sided with both Islamic invaders. Travesty & Perversity of dynasty!,” Mr Rao said.
The BJP leader’s attack on Mr Gandhi comes a day after senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal requested the Supreme Court to defer the hearing of the Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute case and urged the court to take up the matter on July 15, 2019.
”To preserve the decorum of law and order, I, personally request this court to take up this matter on July 15, 2019, once all the pleadings are complete,” Mr Sibal submitted in the court.
The senior Congress leader said he wanted a Constitutional Bench reference in this matter as the issue touched the very basis of ‘secularism’, the basic structure of the Constitution.
