New Delhi:

After Kapil Sibal’s statement in Supreme Court on Ram temple, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday targeted the Congress leader, terming it as “unfair and irresponsible.”

Sibal had sought deferment of the hearing on the Ayodhya dispute till the conclusion of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

While talking to ANI, Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that Sibal should not forget that he was the law minister in the past. He said Sibal must aware that what impact his statement would make outside.

“As a lawyer Kapil Sibal can argue any matter but he should not forget that he has been the law minister in the past. What does he mean, when he says don't hear the matter till 2019 as it will have an impact outside? It is unfair and in many ways irresponsible, “Prasad said.

Reacting to Sibal’s statement, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said that Haji Mehboob of Sunni Waqf Board has already declined Kapil Sibal's statement, saying that it was his personal view.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Modi also questioned Congress, saying why the grand old party is linking Ram temple with the Lok Sabha polls.
