Why link Ram Mandir with elections? PM Modi questions Kapil Sibal

The Supreme Court had on Tuesday rejected the submission of the Sunni Waqf Board and some other Muslim organisations party to the case that the hearing of appeals in the sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute be conducted in July 2019 after the general elections and fixed February 8 to hear them.
Meanwhile, PM Narendra Modi accused the Congress of linking the Ram Mandir issue with Lok Sabha elections.
He also said that the true character of the party was revealed the way one of its leaders pitched to extend the dates of the Ayodhya matter hearing.
Union Minister of Law and Justice Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday questioned the Congress Party's stand on the controversial Ram Janmbhoomi matter.
Kapil Sibal argued the case in Supreme Court as a Congress leader and not on behalf of the board, Sunni Waqf Board member Haji Mehboob said. "Whenever the Congress wants to take a different stand on an issue, it keeps Kapil Sibalji in the forefront. You want to stop the hearing of Ram temple (issue) in the name of elections", Modi told a well attended election rally here in Ahmedabad district.
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.
"Congress" stand has always been clear, that the Ayodhya matter will be heard and decided by the Supreme Court. "Who he represents in court is Kapil Sibal's personal matter", Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala had said.
Congress leader Anand Sharma said his party was not a litigant in the dispute, and would accept whatever decision the Supreme Court made.
The UP Sunni Wakf Board was quicker to dissociate itself from not just Sibal, but also Mehboob. Regarding the entire controversy, Sibal said that, " Will discussion on my going to the court & representing someone solve serious problems in the country?
Modi said he faced a similar situation ahead of the Uttar Pradesh polls regarding triple talaq.
"The PM did not check the fact that actually I never represented the Sunni Waqf Board in the Supreme Court and yet he thanked them".
