He said an independent action committee would be set up by the state assembly tomorrow, to help resolve the issue."Members of the committee will consist of professionals such as lawyers, former judges and town planners," he told a news conference at the Parliament lobby here.However, he said the committee would not involve parties with interest, including the Batu Caves temple management.
