Bhagwat to discuss strategy post-HC ruling

With the Babri Masjid title suit verdict expected on September 24, RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat will be holding a series of meetings with the senior-most leadership of the Sangh Parivar affiliates to chalk out a strategy post the high court order.

Mr Bhagwat, who is currently in the city, is expected to meet senior leaders of the Sangh Parivar members such as the BJP and the VHP in the next few days. Significantly though, Mr Bhagwat told reporters here on Tuesday that the Sangh Parivar’s response to the forthcoming verdict would be “democratic” and within “law and the Constitution.”
He also indicated on Tuesday that legal options can be availed if the ruling by the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad high court does not meet expectations.
At the same time, he said that the Hindus of the country want to see a Ram temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya.
Among the leaders with whom Mr Bhagwat will be holding discussions are VHP leader Ashok Singhal. The senior BJP leadership too will be meeting him to discuss the various issues surrounding the forthcoming verdict, said sources.
The RSS has already asked Sangh Parivar leaders to refrain from making any controversial statements on the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi issue.
Further, Mr Bhagwat said that any response of the RSS to the verdict will be “within the limits of law, Constitution and democratic way.”
Further, Mr Mohan Bhagwat said: “Of course, the aspirations of the Hindu society are that there should be a temple on Ram Janmabhoomi. Our response to the verdict will be according to those wishes. We will try to ensure that the Ram temple is constructed there,” during an interaction with women journalists.
Mr Bhagwat also claimed that the RSS is not in favour of any type of divide in the society on the Ayodhya issue and neither does it see it as a Hindu-Muslim dispute.

Sept. 14: The JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav stated that all sections of the society should accept the Allahabad HC verdict on the Ayodhya issue, which is to be given on September 24. He dismissed suggestions that the court verdict would have any impact on the Bihar Assembly polls.
In his press briefings, Mr Yadav said that the Ayodhya issue could only be solved through negotiations or a court verdict which everybody should accept. On the issue the JD (U) has a consistent view.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
