The Indian Supreme Court today refused to accord urgent hearing on a plea of a BJP leader seeking a direction to the Centre that it should clarify its stand on the Ram Sethu.

A bench comprising Chief Justice TS Thakur and Justices AK Sikri and R Banumathi asked BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, who has filed the plea, to come before the court if the Centre "touches" the bridge.

"There is no need for urgent hearing. If they do not touch the Ram Sethu, then you need not worry," the bench said.

Mr Swamy mentioned the matter and sought urgent hearing, saying that the Centre be asked to file its response to the effect that it will not tamper with the bridge.

He also said that the Centre had already clarified its stand outside the court that it has no intention whatsoever to tamper with it.

"As and when they (the Centre) touch it, you can come to us," the bench said, reportedly.
