BJP President Rajnath Singh said that reference to the demolition amounted to "instigating" a particular community on the eve of polls. "We were surprised. It was not expected from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to say all this," the BJP chief said in an interview in Delhi.

He was commenting on the attack on Advani by the Prime Minister who had said that the BJP leader had played a "prominent role in Babri Masjid destruction". "To remind people about Babri Masjid is vote-bank politics, communal politics.

It is to instigate the sentiments of a particular community," the BJP chief said. He insisted that the BJP disfavours "polarisation on communal lines" as it believes in the politics of "justice for all and appeasement of none". BJP also believes in taking along people of all religions instead of appeasing any particular section or community, he said.
