SC Suggestion On Ayodhya Is Improper, Says CPI
New Delhi: The Communist Party of India disagreed with the Chief Justice of India JS Khekar to put the ball back into the court of the disputed parties by calling for an amicable out-of-court settlement of the Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid issue. In fact, the dispute was about the title deed of the disputed site.
In a press release here on Wednesday, CPI general secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy said that the apex court, instead of deciding on the legal ownership of the disputed site, revived the repeatedly failed attempts for an out-of-court settlement.
In 1990, then Prime Minister Chandrasekhar first tried the method of negotiations. Since then many attempts were made officially and unofficially; but all failed.
“Again such a proposal from the Apex Court was surprising. Instead, the court must come out with a firm verdict on the issue of the title of the deed”, he felt.
The CPI strongly felt the only way to settle the issue was to give a just verdict over the dispute which will be binding on all parties of the dispute. (NSS)
