In a fresh bid to resolve the Ayodhya tangle, Kanchi Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati has sent new proposals to the All India Muslim Personal Law Board.
"Though the Kanchi seer's formula has not yet reached us, we have been told by sources close to the seer that the formula is on its way," AIMPLB vice-president and noted Shia cleric Maulana Kalbe Sadiq said.
"The proposals of the seer have been sent by courier and are likely to reach us within a day or two," he said.
The Shia leader said he had sought postponement of a meeting of the Babri panel scheduled to be held in New Delhi on June 21, to enable the Board members to go through the proposals.
Sadiq claimed that the AIMPLB chairman and noted Islamic scholar Maulana Rabe Hasan Nadvi had agreed to postpone the meeting.
Shankracharya's proposals would be referred to the board's working committee for consideration, he said.
