New Delhi: A day after the Supreme Court adjourned hearing in Ayodhya Ram Mandir title case suit till January 2019, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday said that consensus remains the best solution but if if that is not possible there were many other ways too to resolve the issue. He also asserted that if justice is delayed it is equivalent to injustice.
“Consensus remains the best solution, there were many other ways to thrash out. The majority community in the country expects an early verdict in the case. If justice is given in time it is appreciated as fair but when delayed it is equivalent to injustice,” tweeted the UP CM.
Referring to the growing dissatisfaction among the seers’ community over the postponement of the daily hearing that was expected earlier to start from October 29, Adityanath said, “We respect all the saints and seers and honour their concerns. One must not lose patience and should face the problems with a calm mind. This is a transition phase and I think seers should participate in the positive efforts that are being taken towards resolving the issue.”
Earlier the RSS had said that the Supreme Court should take an early decision on the Ram Janmabhoomi issue and that if there are any hurdles in the path of Ram temple construction at the site, the government should bring a law soon.
“The Supreme Court should take an early decision and if there is any difficulty, the Government should make a law to remove hurdles in the construction of the Ram temple to grant land at the Ram Janmabhoomi site,” Arun Kumar, an RSS spokesman, said.
Meanwhile, Congress had accused the BJP of raking up the issue every time elections are around the corner. ” “The Court will decide when the Ayodhya case be heard. It can’t be decided by the BJP or the Congress,” senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal had said.
On Monday, Chidambaram had observed that it was a familiar story every five years before the elections when the BJP tried to polarise the issue.
