Kalyan Singh indulged in the ultimate act of political immorality alleges former Congress leader Sanjay Jha

Opposing the renaming of roads in Uttar Pradesh after former state chief minister, suspended congress leader Sanjay Jha on Tuesday alleged that Singh indulged in the ultimate act of political immorality. He was UP CM when Babri Masjid was brought down, he told Times Now anchor Navika Kumar in an interview.

As a tribute to former chief minister, the state government on Monday declared that one each road in six districts of Ayodhya, Lucknow, Bulandshahr, Aligarh, Etah and Prayagraj would be renamed after the BJP who passed away in Lucknow on August 21.

Jha further said, “Kalyan Singh submitted a four point affidavit (I remember reading it in through detail) to the supreme court of India assuring them as the chief minister of the state, he would ensure that there would be no violation of moral order, and no conspiracy would be allowed to bring down the Babri masjid.”

“Kalyan Singh lies to the supreme court of India in a written affidavit and the viewers ought to know the indecency and vulgarity of Indian politics that the BJP chief minister mislead the sc of India,” he added.

Sanjay Jha said, Kalyan Singh, later took credit saying he had ordered the police not fire at anybody no matter what the situation.

Kalyan Singh as chief minister during the fall of Babri masjid

As UP’s chief minister, the defining moment in Kalyan Singh’s life was the fall the 16th century Masjid on December 6, 1992. Earlier, he had filed an affidavit in the Top Court, assuring that Babri Mosque would be protected. But just hours after mobs of kar sevaks demolished it, he quit as UP chief minister owning moral responsibility and the state assembly was dissolved as riots erupted at several places in the country.

Not that Singh had any regrets over his “failure” to save the mosque which he had assured the Court that it would be protected. “Maybe it was destined that the structure would be demolished with me as the chief minister,” he told a newspaper ahead of the 2020 Ram temple “bhoomi pujan.” The new temple is now being constructed at once a disputed site in Ayodhya after a historic Supreme Court verdict on Babri masjid.

He had also said that if there had been no demolition, probably the courts too would have ordered status quo.
