Dismiss Jaitley first: Congress hits back at BJP’s criticism of Kapil Sibal

NEW DELHI: Senior Congress Leader Randeep Surjewala on Tuesday hit back at the criticism of Kapil Sibal by BJP President Amit Shah over Ayodhya issue in the apex court, saying if a party is sought to be blamed for a lawyer representing a side in a case, then Finance Minister Arun Jaitley should be dismissed for having appeared for Dow Chemicals in the Bhopal gas tragedy case.

He was responding to Amit Shah’s latching on to lawyer and Congress leader Kapil Sibal’s plea for deferring hearing the Ramjanambhoomi dispute case till after the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and asking party Vice President Rahul Gandhi to clear the Congress stand on the Ram temple issue.

Surjewala said Congress’ stand on Ayodhya issue has always been clear. “The Ayodhya case will be decided by Supreme Court,” he said, adding “BJP is playing the role of Manthara (a character from Ramayana known for negative influence).”

The senior Congress Leader said that the BJP intends to politicise the Ram Temple issue and does not want “Lord Ram’s exile to ever end”.

Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah for raking up “irrelevant issues”, the Congress spokesperson asked them instead to give an account of their 22-year rule in poll-bound Gujarat on the issue jobs, farmers’ distress, problems of youth and reservation for Patidars.

Modi is reverting to “Mughal Raj”, “Aurangzeb”, “Tughlaq”, Pakistan, Afghanistan, China to divert attention from real issues, Surjewala alleged.
