BJP chief Amit Shah today accused the Congress of "shameful posturing" on Ram temple issue and having a "hidden agenda" of keeping the matter pending, as the ruling party stepped up its attack over Kapil Sibal's submission in the Supreme Court.
"Now that Sunni Waqf Board has said that they don't agree with what Kapil Sibal said in court, it is certain that Sibal spoke in his capacity as a Congress leader, with the blessings of their high command.
There are reports that the board has said it did not agree with Sibal's views.
The board's clarification has made it clear that the Congress wants to delay the hearing on the issue, Shah said later in a statement.
"Keeping the Ram Temple issue pending (in court) is a hidden agenda of the Congress. It wants to exploit the matter politically. The double face of the Congress on the issue has been exposed before the masses," Shah said.
The BJP chief claimed that the opposition party had often used Sibal to "mislead" people.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also attacked the opposition party on the issue in his public meetings today.
