Hindu Mahasabha to move SC in Ayodhya case by Nov 10

October 30, 2010 16:10 IST

The Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, one of the main litigants in the Ayodhya title suits, on Saturday said it will move the Supreme Court against the verdict of the Allahabad high court by November 10.

"The Mahasabha would file its appeal in the apex court against the high court verdict by November 10 and has authorised its national leader Dinesh Chandra Tyagi to pursue the case," state unit president of the Mahasabha Kamlesh Tewari said.

He said that at a recent meeting of all factions of the party, it was decided that since Tyagi has been looking after the case in the high court, he should continue to do so in the Supreme Court. "Counsel Hari Shankar Jain, who had represented the Mahasabha in the high court, would continue to look after it," Tewari said.

On the ongoing dispute within the party over the post of the national president, he said that some of its leaders had tried to 'hog the limelight' by making different claims to the media.

While the state unit was preparing to move the apex court, Swami Chakrapani filed a caveat in the SC to lay claim over the post of the national president, Tewari said, adding that agents of the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh would be 'thrown out' by the mahasabha.
