In her letter, Uma Bharati said that her decision not to seek bail if found guilty in the case may exclude her from his team but that would be the latter’s decision.

Bharati is said to have written to the BJP president on the day Nadda announced a new team of BJP office-bearers. She had been divested of her role as party vice-president.

Last year, the Supreme Court delivered a landmark judgement in the Babri Masjid title case. The court allotted the disputed site in Ayodhya for the construction of a Ram temple and asked for a different site to be allotted for building a mosque. Allotting the disputed site for the construction of a Ram temple, the Supreme Court said the demolition of the Babri Masjid was a violation of the rule of law.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigated the case and produced 351 witnesses and nearly 600 documents as evidence before the special court.
