Mahant Narendra Giri, the newly elected President of All India Akhara Parishad, met Hashim Ansari, the oldest surviving litigant in the Babri Masjid case on Monday.

Giri, along with other mahants and sadhus, had a half-an-hour-long meeting with Ansari. "We are trying our best to reach a negotiated settlement in this dispute. The settlement must be peaceful and should be acceptable to both the communities. At the same time, we also want that the Supreme Court should conduct day-to-day hearing in this case," Giri later said.

Ansari said, "We are always ready for talks and we must find a peaceful way to solve this dispute so that both the communities feel happy."
