All Updates on Law on Ayodhya Ram Temple
On Friday, former Supreme Court judge Jasti Chelameswar said in Mumbai that a law for the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya can be brought by the government, even when the dispute is before the Supreme Court. Speaking at an interactive session hosted by the All India Professionals Congress, an organisation affiliated to the Congress party, Justice (retired) Chelameswar said there have been instances of the court’s decisions being scuttled legislative process.
His comments came when the clamour for enactment of a law to pave the way for construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya was growing within the Sangh parivar.
Earlier this year, Justice Chelameswar was among the four senior judges of the Supreme Court who went public with their objections about the then Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra’s style of functioning.
On being questioned if a law for Ram temple can be passed by the Parliament, while the matter is in the Supreme Court, Chelameswar said it could happen.
