Babri charges revived to keep Advani from being President: Lalu

IANS  |  Patna 

(RJD) chief on Wednesday said the revival of conspiracy charges in the Babri demolition case was a "well-planned political conspiracy" to keep L.K. Advani away from being nominated as the next President.

"CBI is an arm of the government, it says what the government wants it to say. It is a well-planned political conspiracy," Yadav said.

"We were hearing that L.K. Advani may become the next President. Now no will even talk about nominating him," he said.

"The VHP (Vishwa Hindu Parishad) and RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) are such dangerous parties, they do not even care about their own people," he said.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday revived the conspiracy charge in the Babri Masjid demolition case against senior BJP leaders Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh, Union Minister Uma Bharti, among others.

The CBI had petitioned the court for restoring criminal conspiracy charges.

The Allahabad High Court had earlier dropped the charges of criminal conspiracy.
