A special bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said that it would hear the appeals on March 14 and clarified that it never intended to hear the case on a “day-to-day basis”.

Speaking to reporters, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy quoted Misra as saying that the court would “certainly go on the principle of day-to-day hearing” after the next hearing.

The Supreme Court commenced the hearing of Ayodhya dispute as a crucial hearing on a batch of petitions in tech politically-sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute which was scheduled today on 8th Feb,18 and also said that it would not hear arguments on politics or religion.

Times Now quoted Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra as saying that poor citizens were waiting for justice, and 700 petitions in the case “can be disposed of by devoting a few hours”. Books including Bhagavad Gita and Ramayana were submitted to the apex court on Thursday, along with 87 witness depositions.

Speaking to reporters, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy quoted Misra as saying that the court would “certainly go on the principle of day-to-day hearing” after the next hearing.

As mentioned in firstpost :

Thursday’s hearing assumes significance as a special bench headed by Misra had rejected the submission by Sunni Waqf Board and others that the pleas be heard after the 2019 General Elections.

On 7 December, the court took a dim view of the conduct of certain senior lawyers describing it as “shameful”. “What happened on 6 December was shameful. What happened on 5 December was extremely shameful,” Misra had said.
