Top BJP leaders L K Advani, M M Joshi and Uma Bharti will be tried for criminal conspiracy in the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition case as the SC today allowed the CBI plea to restore the charge against them.
The apex court, however, noted that Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh enjoys Constitutional immunity and can be tried only after he ceases to hold the office. Kalyan Singh was the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh in 1992.
"Even Kalyan Singh has no moral right to continue on a constitutional position like that of a Governor and he must step down to face the charges," said Malik.
