The Supreme Court will on January 4 hear a public interest litigation (PIL) questioning the delay in adjudication of Ayodhya matter. The matter is listed before a bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice SK Kaul.
The top court had in October rejected an urgent hearing after the Uttar Pradesh government argued that it was a 100-year-old dispute that should be taken up on priority. The court ruling had triggered loud demands for an ordinance within the BJP and various groups linked to its ideological mentor RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) to pave way for the construction in the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
Addressing a press conference, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said, “The government wants the Ram temple matter to be heard on day-to-day basis so that this issue is resolved at the earliest.”
