NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court is to hear Tuesday the plea for deferment of judgement in the Ayodhya title suit and all eyes are on what Attorney General G E Vahanvati will say on the contentious issue.

Vahanvati, to whom the court has issued a notice for assistance, will appear before a three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice S H Kapadia and Justices Aftab Alam and K S Radhakrishnan.

The Attorney General`s opinion will have a bearing on deciding the appeal filed against the judgement of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court decision which had on September 17 refused to defer the pronouncement of the verdict.
The apex court had on Thursday stayed for a week the High Court verdict following the petition moved by a retired bureaucrat Ramesh Chand Tripathi seeking deferment of the verdict to explore the possibility of an out-of-court settlement.
