SC rejected Swamy’s plea for early hearing

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy’s plea for early hearing of Babri Masjid Case was rejected by the Supreme Court today. Swamy seeked permission for construction of Ram temple on the ruins of Babri Masjid. “You didn’t tell us you were not a party to the case, we only got to know that from the press,” a bench comprising of Chief Justice of India J.S. Khehar and D.Y. Chandrachud said and also asked “What is your locus standi in the case? We don’t have time to hear you now,” the Supreme Court bench told Swamy, to which Swamy replied “My right to pray is affected by the pending case and I had filed an intervening application,” In an earlier hearing, CJI Khehar had observed that the Ayodhya dispute must be settled amicably through “a cordial meeting” of all parties and offered to personally mediate the issue. The Allahadbad High Court had ordered for partitioning the and equally among the three parties i.e. the Sunni Waqf Board, Nirmohi Akhara and the Ram Lalla (infant Lord Ram), represented by the Hindu Mahasabha. Later today, Swamy tweeted “The judges said they have no time and adjourned the matter. In other words those who wanted delay succeeded. I will try another route soon,”
