"Session of Parliament will end on February 11, the announcement could have come after 8th February. Seems like BJP is worried over Delhi elections. It (formation of trust) was the decision of Supreme Court which is supreme," Owaisi told ANI.
"After the judgement on Ram Temple case came, we said that the Supreme Court is supreme. The Supreme Court had said that placing idols in Masjid and demolition is a criminal act and a national shame. Today, the Prime Minister announced this. The court said that the trust will be formed... We can't forget Babri masjid demolition," he said.
