Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has said that BJP-led Centre cannot take 'credit' for the Supreme Court's Ayodhya verdict. "We'd requested the government to make a law on construction of Ram Temple but the government did not do that," said Thackeray. He added, "Now when the SC is going to pronounce the verdict, the government can't take credit for it."
Ahead of Supreme Court's verdict in Ayodhya case, PM Narendra Modi tweeted, "Supreme Court's verdict won't be a victory or defeat for anyone." "We all have to maintain harmony together even after the court's decision," he added. "Our priority should be that the decision should further strengthen the great tradition of peace, unity, and goodwill of India," he stated.
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.
