New Delhi: Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi on Sunday hit out at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for asking Supreme Court to take a decision on Ram temple like Sabarimala. “Yeh dukhaad prasang hai Bharaat ke liye ki aise mukhyamantri jinko koi gyaan nahi hai samvidhaan ka (This is a sad incident for India, that a CM has no knowledge of constitution),” said the Congress leader, while addressing a press conference today.

“Nobody should be discriminated. If Supreme Court can give its verdict on Sabarimala Temple, then we appeal that a decision on Ram Mandir should also be taken.

Adityanath’s statement comes at a time when the Supreme Court on Monday is likely to start hearing on a batch of petitions challenging the 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict trifurcating the disputed site at Ayodhya into three parts for Ram Lalla, Nirmohi Akhara and the original Muslim litigant. The matter would be heard by a bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice K.M. Joseph.
Recently, the Supreme Court had permitted women of all ages to enter the Sabarimala Temple. Following the verdict, Kerala has been witnessing massive protests from devotees at various places.
