“We all should respect and uphold the verdict. Moreover, there are some people who are going to file a petition against the verdict. I would like to tell them that such sensitive issues must come to an end. And there is no point in taking such issues further. As a part of new India, we must advocate peace and harmony for all,” said Tamboli.
