Raising questions on the verdict of the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court on the Ayodhya title suits, Communist Party of India (Marxist) Polit Bureau member Brinda Karat said here on Friday that evidence was needed to settle questions of property.

“On a question of property, evidence is needed. If belief is the basis for justice, several questions will be raised about the law of the land.”

“What does the judgment say about the demolition of the mosque in 1992,” she asked at a rally to start a three-day State conference of the West Bengal unit of the All-India Democratic Women's Association.

Ms. Karat said the ruling party at the Centre had put potent weapons of communalism in the hands of the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

Reaffirming the belief in the ultimate authority of the Supreme Court, Ms. Karat said: “We will stand by a secular judgment, and peace and communal harmony.”

She warned rumourmongers and communal forces sternly. “If anyone tries to take advantage by disrupting the peace and communal harmony, it will not be tolerated.”

The CPI(M) leader trained her guns on Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, reiterating her alleged links with Maoists and accusing her of doublespeak on the recent hike in petrol prices and the Women's Reservation Bill.

The direct and indirect links between the Trinamool and the perpetrators of the Jnaneswari Express derailment were revealed, Ms. Karat said.

Ms. Karat also spoke about Ms. Banerjee's recent visit to Darjeeling, where she made several promises on development and employment. Ms. Banerjee had not yet filled the two lakh vacancies in the Railways, Ms. Karat said.
