“I welcome the Supreme Court’s (SC) verdict. It is not someone’s defeat or victory. However, it will strengthen our country’s multilingual and inter-religious harmony,” Fadnavis said.

MUMBAI: Acting chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday hailed the Ayodhya verdict and said that the judgement will strengthen the country’s multilingual and inter-religious harmony.

“I welcome the Supreme Court’s (SC) verdict. It is not someone’s defeat or victory. However, it will strengthen our country’s multilingual and inter-religious harmony,” Fadnavis said.

“The verdict will strengthen the values of democracy. My thanks to the people who have maintained a peaceful environment and brotherhood in the State,” added Fadnavis. 
 
“The people of the State have shown their tradition and culture and have maintained peace. I hope that in the future, they will maintain peace in the State and celebrate the festivals,” he further said.  
  
“This verdict is going to solidify the people’s belief in the judicial system,” he told media persons.
Meanwhile, Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray welcomed the verdict on Ayodhya issue.
 
He announced that he will visit Ayodhya on November 24, exact a year after his visit to the city before the Lok Sabha elections.

Thackeray revealed his plan after the verdict. He said that everyone would remember late Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray after the verdict. 

“There are many people behind the struggle, but BJP’s senior leader Lal Krishna Advani should be remembered for the battle. I will also visit Advani to thank him and congratulate him. He had taken out a ‘Rath Yatra’ for this. I will surely meet him and seek his blessings,” said Thackeray.

“Last year when I had gone there, I had carried the soil from Shivneri, the birthplace of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, with a belief that it has some magic. The issue has been resolved within a year. Now, I plan to go to Ayodhya on November 24 again and before that, I will visit Shivneri,” Uddhav said.

“Today will be written in golden letters in India’s history. I am happy that the long-pending issue has been resolved and everyone has accepted the verdict,” added the Sena chief.

He further appealed to the people that they must celebrate the verdict, but not misbehave. 

“Peace and harmony should be maintained in the State,” he appealed.
