- "We urged government to make law on Ram Temple construction," he said
- Sena, BJP are at loggerheads over government formation in Maharashtra
- The top court delivered a landmark verdict in the Ayodhya dispute today
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Friday said the BJP-led Union government cannot take "credit" for the Supreme Court's much-awaited Ayodhya verdict.
The Supreme Court delivered a landmark verdict on Saturday in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute in Ayodhya. The disputed land in Ayodhya will be given to a government-run trust for the building of a temple and a five-acre "suitable" plot will be given for a mosque
"We had requested the government to make a law on construction of Ram Temple (in Ayodhya) but the government did not do that. Now, when the SC is going to pronounce the verdict, the government can't take credit for it (even if the verdict favours the pro-temple side)," Mr Thackeray said.
The Sena and BJP are at loggerheads over government formation in Maharashtra, the stalemate over equal sharing of the chief minister's post leading to an impasse, resulting in the resignation of CM Devendra Fadnavis a day ahead of the expiry of the 13th state Assembly.
