New Delhi: Maintaining that everyone should abide by the court verdict on Ayodhya title suits, the Congress on Wednesday said the High Court ruling slated for September 24 would be an adjudicated decision which is binding and obeyed in letter and spirit.
"Congress has always held that in an ideal situation, the issue should have been solved by dialogue by the parties involved. But now when the issue is in court, the verdict is acceptable to us," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters here.

He said as it would be an adjudicated decision of the High Court, "it is binding and obeyed in letter and spirit". Singhvi refused to comment on whether the court should defer the hearing of the matter.

"We have no stand whether the judgement should come out on September 24 or not," he said.

Asked about Congress asking all its MLAs and MPs in UP to be present in their constituencies to promote communal harmony on the day of the Allahabad High Court judgement, Singhvi said Congress has taken an initiative.

"Every sensible political party should have the message of peace. It is the responsibility of everyone to maintain peace," the spokesman added.
