Former Supreme Court judge Jagti Chelameswar said on Friday that despite the case pending in the Supreme Court, the government could make laws for the construction of Ram Temple. He said that there have been instances of creating a barrier in court decisions by the legislative process.Justice Chelameswar has made this comment at a time when demand for a law to make a path for the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya is increasing in the Sangh Parivar. Justice Chelameswar remarked in a discussion session organized by All India Professionals Congress (AIPC), a Congress party affiliated organization.
“Legally if it can happen (or not) is one aspect. Whether it will happen (or not) is another. I’m aware of instances that happened in the past where decisions of the Supreme Court were scuttled by the legislative process,” he said.
