A day before the Special Bench of the Allahabad High Court meets to make a last ditch effort to find an amicable solution to the Ayodhya case, leaders of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Vishwa Hindu Parishad held a marathon meeting in New Delhi on Thursday to discuss the issue.

VHP President Ashok Singhal and General Secretary Pravin Togadia reached the RSS office and held discussions with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.

Before pronouncing its verdict on the 60-year-old Ayodhya title suit on September 24, the Special Bench has called the lawyers of the parties to the dispute on Friday to find ways for resolving the case through reconciliation.

The RSS and VHP leaders are understood to have discussed the possible scenario emerging out of the latest effort by the Allahabad High Court to find an amicable solution.

If no solution is found, the bench would pronounce its judgment on September 24.

Bhagwat has already made it clear that RSS' response to the verdict will be "within the limits of law, Constitution and democratic way."

"Hamare taraf se koi jhanjhat nahi hoga (there will be no trouble from our side)," Bhagwat had said on Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters at Sangh's Delhi headquarters Keshav Kunj, RSS leader Ram Madhav said the organisation was hopeful that the court verdict would be "in favour of building the temple."

He also said that the best way to solve the issue would be through a legislation by Parliament.

"We call upon the government to explore the possibility of bringing legislation facilitating the construction of temple," Madhav said.

He reiterated the Sangh's stand that it favoured construction of a "grand Ram temple" at the disputed site. RSS sources said the two VHP leaders also addressed the regional campaigners (pradeshik pracharak) of the RSS who have converged in the capital for a two-day conclave.
