"Why all questions are directed at me?" Rajeev Dhavan at SC
The hearing of Ayodhya land dispute case in Supreme Court has marched into the last few days with the October 17 deadline approaching.
Lucknow: The hearing of Ayodhya land dispute case in Supreme Court has marched into the last few days with the October 17 deadline approaching.
The Muslim parties are closing their arguments on Monday and while presenting their case, counsel Rajeev Dhavan asked the court why all questions are directed at him and not the other stakeholders.
"I have noticed something very interesting during this hearing. All your questions have been directed towards me and not them. Perhaps your Lordships could have asked them some questions too," said Rajeev Dhavan in the apex court on the 38th day of the day-to-day hearing of the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case.
The court, however, ignored the remark made by the counsel of the Muslim parties and said that he will have to answer all questions that are directed at him.
Senior advocate CS Vaidyanathan, who is appearing for deity Ram Lalla, objected to the comment and said it is an "unwarranted statement".
Dhavan then shot back saying, "It is not unwarranted. I'm bound to answer all questions but why are all questions directed at us?"
It is yet not clear as to what conclusion will the apex court come to.
