Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday welcomed the statement from the Sunni Waqf Board that the pleading made by their counsel Kapil Sibal in the Supreme Court to defer the hearing on Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute till 2019 was "erroneous"."You tell me what 2019 general elections have to do with Ram temple at Ayodhya", Mr Modi asked the gathering."I congratulate Sunni Waqf Board, I am also grateful to them".

Sibal on Supreme Court said that since the court's decision in the case would have "very serious ramifications", the hearing be deferred till July 2019 by which time the general election would be over.

Reacting swiftly to BJP president Amit Shah's allegations on the Congress's stand on Ram temple in Ayodhya, Randeep Surjewala and Pawan Khera, the national spokespersons of the Congress, said that the Congress stand on the Ram temple was similar to the BJP's - the readiness to accept the verdict of the Supreme Court.

The Sunni Waqf Board on Wednesday disassociated itself from senior lawyer and Congress leader Kapil Sibal, who had been representing it in the Supreme Court in connection with the long-standing Ayodhya matter.

On the 25th anniversary of Babri Masjid demolition, a talk titled "Why Ram Mandir in Ayodhya?' was scheduled to be held at the Koyna Hostel in Jawaharlal Nehru University. I was never a Sunni Waqf Board lawyer".

Another party to the case, Haji Mehboob said he also wanted early disposal of the matter and did not approve of Sibal's stand. The chairman of the body, Zufar Ahmed Farooqui said Sibal wasn't the board's lawyer and that Mehboob himself was not a member of the board, "but an individual party to the matter". "We want a solution to the issue (case) at the earliest", he added. His statement in the court yesterday was wrong.

"We have got nothing to do with his statement as we are not connected to any political party or do politics". "Modi government's law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has himself said in Parliament and outside Parliament that the BJP will accept the Supreme Court order on the Ram temple construction", he said. The elections in the country are being fought by the Congress party.

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

BJP chief Amit Shah tweeted that the Sunni Waqf Board stated that they don't agree with what Sibal said in court.
