BJP, VHP discuss Babri case

October 23, 2004 16:27 IST

Bharatiya Janata Party and Vishwa Hindu Parishad leaders met in New Delhi on Saturday to work out a strategy in the Babri demolition case.

The case is pending before the special court in Rae Bareli.

The meeting at former Union human resources development minister Murli Manohar Joshi's residence was attended among others by VHP leader Ashok Singhal, former Uttar Pradesh BJP President Vinay Katiyar, and VHP leaders Champat Rai and Sadhvi Rithambhara.

Advocates representing all accused in the case were present. The two-hour discussions centered round working out a strategy for the accused.

New BJP President L K Advani could not attend due to other urgent engagements. The court had acquitted Advani, then deputy prime minister, but decided to frame charges against the other accused, including Joshi.
The VHP has been highly critical of the BJP for abandoning Hindutva. It leader Praveen Togadia had accused Advani of 'betraying' Hindus.
