Mann ki Baat: PM says pol parties played mature role in uniting people after 2010 Ayodhya verdict

    PM recalls restraint shown by parties post 2010 Ayodhya verdict | OneIndia News

    New Delhi, Oct 27: Days before the Supreme Court is to deliver its verdict on the Ayodhya issue, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday recalled how political parties and the civil society played a mature role in uniting people when efforts were made to create fissures ahead of the 2010 Allahabad High Court ruling on the disputed land in Ayodhya.

    Mann ki Baat: PM says pol parties played mature role in uniting people after 2010 Ayodhya verdict

    Addressing the people in his monthly "Mann ki Baat" radio address, the prime minister said he vividly remembers the September of 2010 when several "interest groups" had tried to exploit the situation to their interest.

    He said the language that was used was aimed at inflaming the atmosphere. "Some loud mouths had made irresponsible statements just to hog the limelight ... It continued for five to 10 days," he said. Thanks to the people of India, social organisations, political parties, saints, seers and leaders of all faiths, it became a day that furthered unity, he said.

    The judiciary was also respected by all after the verdict, Modi pointed out. A Special Full Bench of the Allahabad High Court had ruled that the disputed land in Ayodhya will be divided into three parts.

    A two-thirds portion is to be shared by two Hindu plaintiffs and one-third will be given to the Sunni Muslim Waqf Board. The apex court is likely to deliver its verdict on the Ayodhya issue sometime in the middle of November.
