IUML welcomes Babri verdict, says Kalyan Singh, Uma Bharti must resign

Hours after the Supreme Court restored criminal conspiracy charges in the Babri Masjid demolition case against some senior Bhartiya Janata Party leaders, Union Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti said she would not resign and there had been no instructions from the party colleagues to do so.

"The issue of Ram temple at Ayodhya is not political but a matter of conviction for me".

The saffron sanyasan, known for her strident views on Hindutva, told a TV channel, "Mujhe faansi ho jaye, jail ho jaye, Ayodhya ke liye, Ganga ke liye, tirange ke liye, mai taiyaar hun (I'm ready to sacrifice my life, ready to go to jail for Ayodhya, the Ganga and the national flag)".

The Supreme Court on Wednesday allowed an appeal by the Central Bureau of Investigation which challenged the dropping of charges against Bharti along with other senior BJP leaders such as L K Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi.

Earlier in the day, the BJP leader announced that she would visit Ayodhya on Thursday to offer prayers to Ram Lala. She further said that Ram Mandir needs to be built in Ayodhya.

Others who will face criminal conspiracy charges are Vinay Katiyar, Sadhvi Ritambara, Satish Pradhan, Champat Rai Bansal. I will do whatever it takes to see the Ram temple constructed.

The apex court, however, noted that Singh enjoys Constitutional immunity and can be tried only after he ceases to hold the office. "I have never repented or apologised", she said. "The Congress has no moral right to seek my resignation", she said.

The BJP, which has been raking up the Ayodhya issue, made it clear that Union minister Uma Bharti would not be asked to quit the Cabinet.

When asked to comment on BJP veteran LK Advani's remark that the demolition of the mosque was the "saddest" day in his life, the minister said, "I will never comment on what Advani ji said". In this (Ayodhya) case, the trial is yet to begin. This country belongs to the cow, Ganga, Ram and the tricolour. The trial will have to be completed in two years.
