“Govt knows this, threatening the judicial process like this is another (failed) attempt to save BJP from their rapidly diminishing political fortunes,”the Lok Sabha MP said in another tweet.

The Centre Tuesday moved the Supreme Court seeking its permission to return the excess or superfluous land around the disputed Ram Janambhoomi Babri Masjid site to its original owners.

In his officialFacebook page, the AIMIM leader alleged thattheCentres pleawas another example of bringing the “political fight of the Central government in the court room.” Owaisi said in 1993, the apex court passed orders that all parties should wait till disputes are resolved.

At this stage, the Centre filing such an application for return of 50-60 acres land to Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas after 3-4 orders rejecting the same, “is completely frivolous and superfluous and full with politics,” he said in the Facebook post.
