New Delhi: The Supreme Court today refused to grant an early hearing in a plea filed by senior BJP leader Dr Subramanian Swamy in the Ayodhya case. A bench of the Apex Court headed by Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar refused to grant an early hearing into Swamy's petition. The bench asked Swamy why did he not inform the court that he was not a party to the Ayodhya case. On Swamy's request, the SC had earlier said that the issue should be resolved through negotiations by various parties, including all the petitioners and respondents.
The Ram temple in Ayodhya is a "sensitive", "sentimental issue" and should be sorted outside court through discussion, the apex court has said
