Two main litigants of the Ayodhya title suit case, Mahant Gyan Das and Hashim Ansari, on Friday said they would put forth a formula before the Supreme Court to resolve the issue.

“We would await all the petitioners in the case to reach the Supreme Court for challenging the Allahabad High Court judgment as decided by them and there we would present the formula worked out by us in written form,” Mahant Das and Mr. Ansari told newspersons at a joint press conference in Ayodhya.

On Thursday, Mr. Ansari had reportedly said the formula would be made public by December 10.

Mahant Das, who was recently removed as president of the Akhil Bhartiya Akhara Parishad at a meeting in Allahabad, blamed the VHP and its chief Ashok Singhal for creating a rift in the body.

“(VHP) do not want the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya at any cost,” Mahant Das said, adding they were more interested in politics and instigating riots.

“It were the vested interests who created a rift in the Akhara Parishad while we were busy working out an acceptable formula to resolve the vexed problems,” Mahant Das said.

Mahant Das, who had earlier claimed that he was still president of the Akhara Parishad, however relented and said he would resign from the post before January 2011.

“I was elected president of the All India Akhara Parishad for five years but have been on the post for seven years now... I also do not keep well and would resign before January,” Mahant Das added.
