Ayodhya case: Supreme Court verdict should end dispute once and for all, says Yogi Adityanath

Ayodhya case hearing: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that he is hopeful of a favourable verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri masjid dispute after the Supreme Court on Wednesday set October 18 as the deadline for hearings in the case to conclude. Adityanath said the BJP government will implement the top courts order like it has always done in the past. Day-to-day hearing in the matter has given hope. I believe that the Supreme Court must take a decision which will end the dispute once and for all, Adityanath told News18 in an interview. We are hopeful of a favourable verdict. I am confident that the BJP will implement whatever the Supreme Court orders. We have respected and implemented courts orders on previous occasions too, he added. Referring to the Supreme Court-mandated mediation process in the decades-old matter, Yogi Adityanath said it was unfortunate that the effort failed to come to any conclusion. #EXCLUSIVE – We are hopeful of a favourable verdict.
