Supreme Court to hear Ram Temple plea

Sat 27 Feb 2016, 11:29:46

The Apex Court on Friday allowed BJP leader Subramanian Swamy to intervene in pending matters relating to the Ayodhya title dispute with his plea seeking the construction of a Ram temple at the site of the disputed demolished structure.

A bench of Justices V Gopala Gowda and Arun Mishra, while tagging Swamy’s fresh plea with pending civil appeals, said that it cannot separately hear the petition seeking direction to allow construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya at the site where the disputed structure was demolished in 1992, as a matter of fundamental right.

Swamy argued that the Government had already given an affidavit that it would pave the way for the construction of the temple if there was evidence and moreover, that there were findings of Archaeological Survey of India to that effect.

At the outset, the bench said that it could not entertain the “writ petition” when the civil appeals were still pending before it and that Swamy should either move the High Court for enforcement of his fundamental rights, or seek impleadment as a party in the pending civil appeals here.
