Ayodhya: A day after Nirmohi Akhara voiced readiness to cooperate with party of Ram Lala for building a temple here following talks with a VHP leader, the man who represented the deity in the court today said he did not authorise anyone to negotiate on his behalf.

Mahant of the Akhara Bhaskar Das yesterday said senior member of Ram Janmbhoomi Nyas and VHP leader Ram Vilas Vedanti met him and the Akhara, which which will get one-third of the disputed land, is ready to cooperate if it gets prominence in arrangements made for the construction of the temple.

However, Triloki Nath Pandey, who represented litigant 'Ram Lala Viraajman' in court as his "next friend", said he has not authorised Vedanti to talk to anyone on his behalf.

Terming Vedanti's reported claim that he has been authorised by Pandey to negotiate with Nirmohi Akhara as "misleading", he said that neither he has any relations with VHP nor with Vedanti.

"I have not initiated any negotiations with any party -- be it Muslim party or Nirmohi Akhara -- and my name that has appeared in media is not correct as media has been mislead by Vedanti and also by Nirmohi Akhara," Pandey said here.

Reacting to Pandey's statement, Vedanti said, "I did not go to Nirmohi Akhara as representative of Pandey but as representative of VHP."
