Varma said the Nirmohi Akhara will meet the Prime Minister and later its executive body will meet again in Ayodhya to discuss whether they have been given appropriate place as mentioned in the verdict

On review petition, Varma said: "We have not decided on it. The Akhara has decided to first meet the PM as on page number 925 in the verdict it has been mentioned that we must get an appropriate place and we will put our demand before him for important post in the management of the Trust -- may be President or Secretary and see what type of role is being given to us in the Trust.

"We have enjoyed our sovereignty right at RamJanmabhoomi, though the court has denied it, but throughout argument the court has accepted our right is unchallenged," Varma said.

"Court has accepted our historical presence at the disputed site and we have played a very important role in RamJanmabhoomi issue as Janmasthan has been worshipped by Ramanandiya Vaishno sect. So we must get role in the trust according to our right -- a prominent role in worshipping Lord Ram," he added.
