Allahabad: A high-powered committee of saints will meet here to study the verdict on the Ayodhya title suits as soon as the Allahabad High Court pronounces its judgment.

"A meeting of Sant Uchchadhikar Samiti (high-powered committee of saints) will be held here at the ashram of Jagadguru Vasudevananda Saraswati, the pontiff of Jyotirmath
shrine," VHP district unit president Pawan Srivastava told a news agency.

Srivastava said the meeting is likely to take place as soon as the verdict is out, but did not specify its exact timing.

He said the meeting will be attended by Vishwa Hindu Parishad supremo Ashok Singhal, after which the VHP will announce its "future course of action".

Depending upon the contents of the Allahabad High Court`s Lucknow Bench order, the future course of action will be announced, he said.

The VHP has always maintained that the Ayodhya dispute could not be solved by any court of law and that facilitating the construction of a temple by an act of Parliament was the only solution to the vexed issue.
