Ayodhya land Dispute

 Workers of the RSS and the BJP on Saturday performed an 'aarti' at a temple adjacent to the RSS headquarter in Mahal area of Nagpur in Maharashtra, hours after the supreme court delivered its verdict on the sensitive Ayodhya land dispute.

They had said the Sunni Waqf Board, Nirvani Akhada, Nirmohi Akhada, Ram Janmabhoomi Punruddhar Samiti and some other Hindu parties were in favour of settling the contentious land dispute.

Fourteen appeals have been filed in the apex court against the 2010 Allahabad High Court judgment, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya be partitioned equally among the three parties -- the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.

As the Supreme Court is likely to pronounce its verdict on the Ayodhya land dispute case next month, the police department is gearing up to put in place adequate security measures for the India-Bangladesh cricket test match to be played in the city from November 14.

The hearing of Ayodhya land dispute case in Supreme Court has marched into the last few days with the October 17 deadline approaching.

Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi, who is heading the five-judge bench said, “If arguments can’t get over by October 18, there won’t be an extra day.” The bench also comprises of Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan, and S Abdul Nazeer.

The top court, which would function with its full judicial strength of 31 judges under the stewardship of Chief Justice (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi, is likely to deliver its verdict in the review pleas in Rafale case.
