Law of land should prevail, guilty must be punished: Cong
The Congress on Wednesday said the guilty in the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition case should be punished.
"The Supreme Court has spoken. Let justice be done and the guilty punished, Congress chief spokesman Randeep Surjewala said, reacting to a Supreme Court order restoring a criminal conspiracy charge against BJP leaders L K Advani, M M Joshi and Uma Bharti.
The Congress also urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ensure that his ministers maintained a "high standard of morality". Uma Bharti is the Minister for Water Resources in the Modi Cabinet.
"The law is equal for everyone irrespective of stature, caste, creed, religion or region," he said.
Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal also expressed satisfaction over the order and hoped that Modi would remember his "pronouncements" on morality.
