New Delhi: The BJP today welcomed the Supreme Court decision dismissing a plea seeking deferment of the verdict in the
Ayodhya title suits, saying it had always maintained that there should be no legal delay in the case.
'We certainly welcome the Supreme Court decision. The party has already stated its position that it does not desire any legal
delay and this verdict of the apex court has cleared the way for the verdict to be pronounced by the High Court,' BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said.
A three-judge SC bench headed by Chief Justice of India S H Kapadia today dismissed the plea seeking deferment of the verdict
on Ramjanamabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suits by the Allahabad High Court. It gave its green signal to the High Court to go ahead with the judgement.
The BJP had held a meeting of its top brass last week and made a public statement that judicial delays of the last 61 years
had prevented construction of a Ram temple at Ayodhya.
It had also expressed the hope that there would be no further legal delay in the case. PTI
