Hitting out at DMK chief M Karunanidhi for raking up the Babri mosque demolition, BJP today demanded to know why he had not spoken about it when his party was part of its led National Democratic Alliance (NDA).      

 "People very well know that DMK had aligned with BJP only after the demolition of that controversial structure and had faced elections (together) in an alliance," party state president Pon.Radhakrishnan said.      

 He said there was an "ulterior motive" in Karunanidhi’s comments, made during an election speech in Puducherry on Thursday, that riots ensued following the demolition of the mosque.      

 "When he was in BJP alliance, Karunanidhi had not made any such criticism and his calling BJP communal smacks of opportunism," he said.      

Karunanidhi had said what happened at Babri mosque should  not recur in other parts, asking the electorate to take a  decision that would be necessary and appropriate not only for  the present generation but also for their posterity.
