Congress welcomes order discharging Advani

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: The Congress on Wednesday welcomed the order of the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court setting aside a trial court order discharging Bharatiya Janata Party president L.K. Advani in the Babri Masjid demolition case.

The party said it had consistently held that Mr. Advani was among the chief persons responsible for the demolition and that he should face trial. "We are, therefore, happy that the court has now given a judgment that Mr. Advani and others should stand trial for their role in the Babri Masjid case," party spokesperson Jayanti Natarajan said. The party was confident that law will take its course and justice will be done, she added.

The Communist Party of India said the order vindicated its stand. "Those involved in the case cannot go scot-free and the law will take its course," party national secretary D. Raja said.
