Balasaheb should have been here to witness Ayodhya verdict: Raj Thackeray
Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray on Saturday welcomed the Supreme Court's verdict on Ayodhya title dispute case and said his thoughts are with his father Balasaheb Thackeray. Welcoming the verdict, Raj Thackeray called it a "momentous day" as "the sacrifice of the karsevaks has finally paid off".
The Supreme Court on Saturday pronounced its verdict in the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi title suit, clearing the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the 2.77-acres disputed site in Ayodhya and giving an alternate five-acre land to the Sunni Waqf Board at some other suitable place for construction of a mosque.
Raj Thackeray said, "My thoughts are with Balasaheb Thackeray as he would have been so happy to witness this historic day. We look forward to the expediting of the construction of the Ram temple and hope to see the heralding of Ram Rajya in the true sense."
The MNS chief also said that it is his wish that 'Ram Rajya' should prevail in the country along with the Ram temple.
"I am happy today. It would not be wrong to say that the sacrifice of the karsevaks during the entire struggle has finally paid off. A Ram temple must be constructed at the earliest. Along with Ram Temple, there should also be 'Ram Rajya' in the nation, so that the issue of unemployment is also addressed," he said.
