SC declines urgent hearing of Swamy’s plea on Ram temple in Ayodhya

New Delhi:The Supreme Court today declined urgent listing of BJP leader Subramanian Swamy’s plea seeking enforcement of his fundamental right to worship at the disputed Ram temple at Ayodhya and asked him to mention it again “later on”.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud considered Swamy’s submission for urgent listing and hearing of his petition relating to the dispute.

“You mention it later on,” the bench said. Swamy said the term “later on” was very subjective and added that he would mention his plea for hearing after 15 days again.

The apex court had refused urgent listing of Swamy’s plea for enforcement of his fundamental right to worship at Ram temple earlier as well.
