At a specially convened press conference, BJP general secretary Bhupender Yadav, with party vice-president Dushyant Gautam, the in-charge of Delhi, maintained the Centre did not have any role in the demolition.
A bench of justices Arun Mishra and S Ravindra Bhat was Monday told by Attorney General K K Venugopal that the Centre has revised its offer from 200 sq mt area for the temple to 400 sq mt keeping in view the faith and sentiments of the devotees.
As per the memorandum of settlement submitted to the SC, the area permitted for worship will be enclosed by a boundary fence and will have a gate for entry. It states that no encroachment will be allowed outside the boundary.
The court had earlier questioned the maintainability of a plea asking as to how could it entertain the petition filed under Article 32 of the Constitution seeking permission to construct a temple demolished on its orders.
SAD Wednesday formed a seven-member committee to hold discussions with the Union government to facilitate restoration of the Guru Ravidas temple at Tughlaqabad to the satisfaction of the Ravidasia community.
Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal Tuesday said that Union Home Minister Amit Shah has assured the party that the Centre would sympathetically consider its appeal to reconstruct the Guru Ravidas temple at its original location in Tughlakhabad.
