Consensus-based Solution Will Ensure Lasting Peace: Congress on Ayodhya Issue

"For the last 25 years, this issue has been used for attaining political power and at times for creating social strife for attaining electoral victories. "The truth, however, is that dialogue and mutual trust have always been the cornerstone of Indias civilisational values and our Ganga-Jamuni culture," the Congress leader also said.

New Delhi: The Congress on Tuesday came out with a guarded response on Ayodhya issue, saying there should either be a "consensus-based" solution, which will go a long way in ensuring lasting peace and goodwill, or the apex court should adjudicate the case on merit.

It also took a swipe at BJP, saying for 25 years, the issue has been used "for creating social strife for attaining electoral victories".

"If all stakeholders on both sides can arrive at a mutually acceptable consensus based solution, it will go a long way in ensuring lasting peace, goodwill, mutual respect and brotherhood. Otherwise, Supreme Court should adjudicate the issue on merits," Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.

He said the Supreme Court today made oral observation to look for an out-of -ourt settlement by mutual deliberation and consent.

"For the last 25 years, this issue has been used for attaining political power and at times for creating social strife for attaining electoral victories. "The truth, however, is that dialogue and mutual trust have always been the cornerstone of Indias civilisational values and our Ganga-Jamuni culture," the Congress leader also said.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday said fresh attempts must be made by all parties concerned to find a solution to the Ayodhya temple dispute which is a "sensitive" and "sentimental matter".

A bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar said that such religious issues can be solved through negotiations and offered to mediate to arrive at an amicable settlement. Meanwhile, Congress MP Rajiv Shukla said that all parties involved in the dispute will go by what the court has to say.

"People will certainly go by what the court says. Because right from the beginning all have taken a stand that they will abide by what the court has to say," Shukla said.
