Senior BJP leader and Union Minister for Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, Uma Bharti on Wednesday said that she will visit Ayodhya tonight to express her pride and satisfaction to Lord Ram. Bharti’s comments came just hours after Supreme Court revived the criminal conspiracy charges against her and other BJP leaders in the 1992 Babri mosque demolition case.

Congress party, after the SC decision was announced, demanded that Uma Bharti and MM Joshi resign from their position to ‘uphold the sanctity of their posts’. Reacting to this, Bharti said that a party which was behind Emergency and 1984 riots had no right to demand her resignation.

The minister also said that there was no conspiracy behind the whole act. “Koi sazish nahi thi, sab khullam khulla tha,” she said. (There was no conspiracy, everything was out there in open)

Bharti added that she was ready to accept any punishment for the ‘Ganga, Ayodhya and Tiranga’. The conspiracy charges were revived on an appeal by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The court also said that charges cannot be revived against Kalyan Singh as he was currently serving as Governor of Rajasthan.

The court also directed that the hearing will be done on a day to day basis by sessions judge in Lucknow court. Also, the judge cannot be transferred during the trial setting the deadline of two years to dispose off the case. Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said that the party will study the verdict in detail.

      Does the court's decision with respect to Kalyan Singh mean that any individual can be exempt from criminal prosecution merely by managing to get elected or appointed to a position in the government?

        Lord Ram will be both gratified and grateful to Bharti that she could spare the time and effort to come in person and express her pride and satisfaction. Now all of us can take comfort in and be encouraged that Lord Ram has an abiding and active interest in the operation of justice delivery. The country across the board is better for that.

            You are half dead bharti, all the accused of Babri Masjid are just corpse, lost their senses, whether they get punishment or not, all these are affected by mental illness. Hypocrite Congress got good shot on its arm, see the fate of this party, still to humiliate a lot, they are direct accused in this case. The w world knew the Terrorist organization rss's role and its terrorists are responsible, but then ruling Congress is also responsible, they didn't do their job, pvn paid for this, even in his death, the dogs pulled his pyre on the streets, others will be paid God willing.

                Its sad but true that Union Ministers are unabashedly communal. She is a good orator in Hindi yet what BJP did in 1992 is shameful. She is putting up a brave face. Otherwise, there is nothing to boast about in this sordid chapter of Indian politics

                    Doesn't this government and the Congress have more important things to do? The country is slowly imploding with m ve problems which all parties are just avoiding or refusing to tackle. India is becoming a very sorry story.

                      If this woman has any shame or a desire to serve country, she should go to ganges instead, have a deep dip in it and should not come out - ever. Mother India would be happy with one less anti-national to guard itself against.

                        Ram was a total moronn who could not think for himself for all his life. So his followers have to atleat totally brain-dead, and they are.

                          What a depraved low life of women this creature is. Rama insulted the w womanhood in his life and she being a proud devotee of him tells a lot about her intellectual abilies. And what is she proud of? Humiliatig and killing of Indian citizens whose supers ions are different from those of hers. She and the people like her are not in the jail already is the real tragedy of mother INDIA. People who support her and other anti national element like her should need to have long look into the mirror.

                            Putting a brave face. Devotees of Lord Rama should sacrifice worldly desires and possessions as done by him, when banished to forest.

                                    Yes Lord ram is waiting for your arrival. Do you listen he keeps on asking you so many questions? he is waiting for your answers. you stealthily took ram idol and thrown in the debris of babri masjid. the idol was laying for long long days. dont you feel it as an insult to ram? There are procedures and rituals to move an idol from one place to another. did you follow the rituals? is this not insult to ram? There is vastu sastra. This should be followed strictly by hindus while placing god idols. did you respect that? After insulting ram in all possible ways and now you are going to express your pride in insulting ram????
