Lucknow: Rift on Tuesday surfaced in Akhil Bharat
Hindu Mahasabha on the issue of filing of a caveat in the
Supreme Court by its President Swami Charkapani to pre-empt an
exparte order on Ayodbya title dispute with the outfit`s state
unit chief alleging Charkapani acted "like an agent of BJP and
RSS".

Mahasabha`s state President Kamlesh Tiwari said it will
file an objection in the apex court against the caveat.
"The state unit of the party, which had been pursuing
the case in the High Court, has been shocked with the news of
the caveat was filed in the SC on Ram Janmbhoomi Ayodhya
issue," Tiwari said.

He said the caveat had been filed by "the
self-proclaimed" national president of the Mahasabha Swami
Chakrapani.

"At a time when the party was about to move the SC
challenging the HC order, Swami Chakrapani by filing the
caveat had attempted to malign the image of the organisation.
He had acted as an agent of BJP and RSS," Tiwari said.

"Filing the caveat is an anti-party activity and the
Mahasabha will file an appeal against it in the apex court,"
Tiwari said.
He said the high-powered committee of the party had
already decided to lodge a case against Swami Chakrapani in
this connection.

Meanwhile, Tiwari said he had met the Mahasabha counsel
Hari Shanker Jain today to discuss filing an appeal against
the HC order in the apex court.
