The Supreme Court on Tuesday deferred the final hearing in the long-pending Ayodhya-Ram Janambhoomi case till February 8, 2018 after a specially constituted bench sat a day before the 25th anniversary of Babri Masjid demolition, reports said.

BJP president Amit Shah accused the Congress of adopting double standards saying Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi is visiting temples but its senior leader Kapil Sibal is being used by the party to delay the Ayodhya case.

Modi questioned Sibal as to why is the Congress leader linking the Ram Mandir case with elections. He, however, noted that the Congress has said the views expressed by Sibal, who represents the Sunni Waqf Board in the case in the Supreme Court, were his own. Congress leader Anand Sharma said that Prime Minister was diverting the issue from lack of development in Gujarat.

"Yes, Kapil Sibal is our lawyer, but he is also related to a political party".

However, Sibal clarified that he did not represent the Sunni Waqf Board, but one of the individuals in the case.

"As the representative body (of Muslims), the board endorses and confirms the said statement of the counsels made in court", it said in a statement.

Reacting swiftly to BJP president Amit Shah's allegations on the Congress's stand on Ram temple in Ayodhya, Randeep Surjewala and Pawan Khera, the national spokespersons of the Congress, said that the Congress stand on the Ram temple was similar to the BJP's - the readiness to accept the verdict of the Supreme Court.

"We have got nothing to do with his statement as we are not connected to any political party or do politics. You want to keep the issue unresolved for political gain and losses in the elections?" "Congress MP Kapil Sibal argued in SC yesterday to postpone the hearing on Shri Ram Mandir in Ayodhya till 2019". The stakeholders in the case had moved the top court after the Allahabad High Court directed the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and the Lord Ram Lalla to settle for a three-way division of the disputed site.

Modi said he faced a similar situation ahead of the Uttar Pradesh polls regarding triple talaq.
