Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation on Saturday after the Supreme Court gave its verdict on the disputed land in Ayodhya. The land will be given to a government-run trust for a temple and a prominent site in the holy town will be allotted for a mosque, the apex court announced today in a landmark verdict in India’s most divisive case dating back decades.
Addressing the nation, PM Modi said that the world knows how robust Indian democracy is. The way the people of this country have welcomed the verdict is commendable. He said, “Today is November 9, the day when the Berlin Wall fell. Today on November 9, the Kartarpur Corridor has been opened by both India and Pakistan. And with today’s Ayodhya verdict, it is giving a message about living together.
Modi said that the Supreme Court verdict has brought a new day for us. After this judgment, we should work towards a new India. Let’s make a beginning of a new India.
He further reiterated, “We have to ensure no one gets left behind. We have to ensure everyone walking with us doesn’t fall behind. The responsibility of every citizen to ensure they follow the rule of law has increased.”
The verdict shows that the toughest problems can be resolved within the Constitution, said Modi.
