The Centre Government on Tuesday moved to Supreme Court seeking permission for release of excess vacant land acquired around Ayodhya disputed site and be handed over to Ramjanambhoomi Nyas. Centre seeks direction to release 67 acres acquired land out of which 0.313 acres is disputed land, reported ANI.

The Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas which has right over 42 acres of the land out of 67 acres had moved to Central Government seeking a return of its 42 acres acquired land.

The central government in 1991 had acquired 67-acre land around the disputed site.

Bhartiya Janta Party Subramanian Swamy took to Twitter and said, ‘The Centre has gone to SC in a WP to seek a release of the non – disputed part of RJB land of 67 acres to start immediate construction. My meeting last evening with HM I had a discussion on my approach. But Centre was keen to obtain prior permission to start construction’

‘There is already a Ram Mandir standing on the RJB but it is in a tent. Till Title Suit is decided we will build all other parts of the temple is built. Then thereafter we will construct the sanctum sanctorum’ he added in another tweet.

Earlier on Sunday, Supreme Court had deferred the Hearing of the Ayodhya Title Dispute Case citing ‘unavailability’ of one of the five Judges.Justice S A Bobde will not be available on January 29 due to which sitting of the Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi stands cancelled’, as per a notice issued by the Supreme Court registry.

The notice, however, has not mentioned a future date for the hearing of Ayodhya Title Dispute.

Speaking on the delay, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad as quoted by ANI said, ‘People of the country expect Ram Temple to be constructed in Ayodhya. As a citizen, I would like to say that this issue has been pending for the last 70 years, it should be solved as soon as possible‘.

Earlier on Friday, January 25, Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi reconstituted the 5 Judge Constitutional Bench importantly drafting in the lone Muslim SC judge in Justice S Abdul Nazeer. The reconstitution of the bench was necessitated after Justice U U Lalit recused from the case on January 10. This was followed by Justice N V Ramana withdrawing citing personal reasons. Judge UU Lalit on January 10  left the case saying ‘He was a lawyer in the case earlier’. Following which the court adjourned matter and deferred next hearing date to January 29.

BJP on its part is pressing for fast hearing in the case keeping in mind the electoral gains for the upcoming Lok Sabha 2019 Polls. Ravi Shankar Prasad urges for fast-track hearing in Ayodhya title dispute

The Ayodhya Dispute title case deals with who owns the controversial land where Babri Masjid once stood and where Lord Ram Believed to have been born. The Allahabad High Court in 2010 verdict had divided the land between three petitioners — two of favoured building a Ram Mandir at the Ayodhya site while the third wanted the Babri Masjid rebuilt.

All the petitioners appealed against the Allahabad High Court verdict. The Supreme Court will now begin hearing those appeals.
