New Delhi, Sep 28 : Congress on Tuesday  welcomed the Supreme Court order paving the way for the Allahabad High Court to deliver its judgement in the 60-year-old Ramjanambhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit.  

"We welcome the order. The party has always held that the issue should either be resolved through mutual talks or the court order should be obeyed," party General Secretary Janaradhan Dwivedi told reporters when asked about the the apex court dismissing the plea for deferment of the verdict by the High Court.  

When asked about the statement of BJP leader Vinay Katiyar that the High Court judgement could be challenged in the Supreme Court or the matter could go to Parliament, Dwivedi said, "they (the BJP leaders) know what they are saying, but there is a consensus in the country that the court verdict should be respected. It is natural that anyone can go to the Supreme Court".  

To apprehensions about law and order situation in the wake of the High Court judgement, he said, "It is our duty as citizens of the country that we maintain peace and goodwill."  

The RSS today said the Supreme Court has done the "right thing" by dismissing a petition seeking deferment of the Allahabad High Court judgement on the Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit.

"Whatever the Supreme Court has said is the right thing. A deliberate attempt was made to derail the judicial process by approaching the Supreme Court," RSS leader Ram Madhav told reporters here. He said the petitioner had no locus standi in the title suit and the apex court had done the "right thing" by dismissing the plea.

"It (petition) deserves dismissal. Now that the petition is dismissed, the whole country is looking forward to the High Court verdict," Madhav said. The High Court verdict would be "one step forward in this legal process", he said adding "rest of the things will be deliberated upon afterwards." PTI
