New Delhi: Congress on Thursday welcomed the
Supreme Court order to stay by a week the Ram Janambhoomi-
Babri Masjid title suit verdict due to be pronounced by
Allahabad High Court tomorrow.
"The party has throughout believed that this problem
can be solved either through talks or if it is not possible
then the decision of the court should be acceptable to all.

"From both points views, this is what appears to be
the sentiment of the Supreme Court order. Hence everybody
should welcome it," AICC General Secretary and media
department chief Janardhan Dwivedi told reporters.

The Supreme Court stayed for a week the verdict and
will hear the plea for deferment of the judgement next
Tuesday.
The Court issued notices to the contesting parties
on the petition filed by retired bureacrat Ramesh Chand
Tripathi challenging the order of the Lucknow Bench of
Allahabad High Court refusing to defer the verdict in the
60-year-old Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit dispute.
