No conspiracy behind Babri demolition: Uma

cities Updated: May 30, 2017 23:50 IST

Union minister for water resources Uma Bharti, who faces charges of criminal conspiracy in the Babri Masjid demolition case, said on Tuesday there was no conspiracy but an “open movement” which led to the demolition.

“I was present in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992, which is no secret. Crores of BJP workers, lakhs of officials and thousands of political leaders participated. It was an open movement like the movement against the Emergency. I don’t see any conspiracy,” Bharti said.

The BJP leader said she appeared before the special Central Bureau of Investigation court out of respect for the court but had “expectations only from God”.

“In a matter concerning God, my hopes also rest on God. Because I contributed (in the movement) with complete faith, I don’t consider myself guilty,” she said.
