New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday said it will hear writ petitions seeking ban on entry of girls and women between the age group of 10 to 50 to Sabarimala, only after it decides the review pleas seeking recall of its September 28 verdict that cancelled all ban on women’s entry to the Lord Ayyappa shrine.

The review petition is listed for consideration by a five-judge bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman, Justice A M Khanwilkar, Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justice Indu Malhotra at 3 p.m.

A bench of the Chief Justice Gogoi, Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice K M Joseph said that the fate of the four petitions seeking ban on entry of 10-50 years old women to the Kerala temple would only be taken up after the review plea against its earlier Constitution Bench verdict was decided.

Gogoi said if they decided to dismiss the batch of review petitions then the four fresh appeals would be listed to be considered separately.

However, if they decided to uphold the review petitions then the four writs would be tagged along with them.

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Monday declined early hearing of petitions in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case. A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice S K Kaul said it had already listed the appeals before the appropriate bench in January.

“We have already passed the order. The appeals are coming up in January. Permission declined,” the bench said while rejecting the request of early hearing of lawyer Barun Kumar Sinha, appearing for the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha.

The top court had earlier fixed the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case for the first week of January before an “appropriate bench”, which will decide the schedule of hearing.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta and senior advocate CS Vaidyanathan, appearing for the UP government and deity Ramlala respectively, had sought early listing of the appeals in the case after referring to their long pendency.

Earlier, a three-judge bench, by a 2:1 majority, refused to refer to a five-judge constitution bench the issue of reconsideration of the observations in its 1994 judgement of the Allahabad High Court that a mosque was not integral to Islam.

The matter had arisen during the hearing of the Ayodhya land dispute.

The apex court bench headed by the then Chief Justice Dipak Misra had said that the civil suit has to be decided on the basis of evidence. It had also said that the previous verdict has no relevance to this issue.

As many as 14 appeals have been filed against the high court judgement, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77 acre land be partitioned equally among three parties — the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.

Colombo: Sri Lanka’s president Maithripala Sirisena on Sunday defended his controversial sacking of parliament, saying the decision was taken to prevent violent clashes among rival legislators and horse-trading of MPs. Sirisena in an address to the nation outlined his reasons for dissolving parliament well ahead of its scheduled closure.

Sirisena’s decision was criticised by some political parties and civil society groups as unconstitutional and illegal. He said there were media reports that politicians would clash during a vote to decide between two men claiming the premiership.

On October 26, Sirisena abruptly sacked Ranil Wickremesinghe as prime minister and replaced him with Mahinda Rajapaksa, after three-and-a-half years of an estranged relationship with him.

The island nation plunged into a constitutional crisis following the move. Sirisena had suspended parliamentary proceedings until November 16. Later, owing to domestic and international pressure, he issued a notice to reconvene parliament on November 14.

However, on Friday, Sirisena dissolved parliament and announced snap polls on January 5 next year after it became evident that he did not have enough support in the House to prove the premiership of Rajapaksa.

“If I allowed the parliament to meet on November 14, there would have been violence in the House and it could have spread to our villagers and towns,” Sirisena said.

“It was sad that parliamentarians were being traded for rupees 100 to 150 million,” Sirisena said, referring to statements made by some of the parliamentarians that they were offered huge money to switch sides.

Sirisena also blamed parliamentary Speaker Karu Jayasuriya for the current political situation.

“The other reason for my dissolution of parliament was the behaviour of Speaker Karu Jayasuriya. He issued statements saying that he would not recognise the appointment of a new prime minister using my presidential powers.”

He said Jayasuriya’s insistence of having a floor test on the very first day of the parliamentary session was unacceptable.

Bengaluru: Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar died at a private hospital here in the early hours of Monday after battling lung cancer for several months. Kumar, 59, breathed his last around 2 am with his wife Tejaswini and two daughters by his bedside.

He had come back to Bengaluru only recently after undergoing treatment in the US and Britain. He was later under treatment at the Sankara Hospital here.

The body of Kumar would be kept at the National College Ground, which falls in his Bangalore South Lok Sabha constituency, for public to pay homage.

Details of funeral arrangements were being worked out, the sources said. Kumar passed away from complications following cancer and infections, his party office said in a statement. He had been on the ventilator in the Intensive Care Unit for the last few days.

Expressing his grief, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he was extremely saddened by the passing away of ‘my valued colleague and friend’ and described him as a remarkable leader, who entered public life at a young age and went on to serve society with utmost diligence and compassion.

He will always be remembered for his good work, he said in a tweet.

“Ananth Kumar Ji was an able administrator, who handled many ministerial portfolios and was a great asset to the BJP organisation. He worked hard to strengthen the Party in Karnataka, particularly in Bengaluru and surrounding areas. He was always accessible to his constituents,” Modi said in another tweet.

The Prime Minister said he spoke to Kumar’s wife Dr Tejaswini and expressed condolences.

“My thoughts are with his entire family, friends and supporters in this hour of grief and sadness. Om Shanti,” he said.

A a six-time member of Parliament, Kumar had climbed the political ladder steadily from being an RSS worker to be the Union minister in his thirties.

Kumar had been in the inner circle of the central leadership of the BJP — be it during the heydays of Atal Bihari Vajpayee or L K Advani and now Narendra Modi. He joined the BJP in 1987 and never looked back, as he held posts of state secretary, state president of the Yuva Morcha, general secretary and national secretary.

Along with state BJP chief Yeddyurappa, Kumar is among a few party leaders who can be credited for the growth of BJP in Karnataka, as they built the party and bringing it to power in 2008, making it the first saffron party government in the South.

Kumar first got elected to Lok Sabha in 1996 from Bangalore South, the constituency, which remained his bastion till his passing away.
