New Delhi, Sep 28 : The BJP on Tuesday  said the Supreme Court decision not to the defer the Ayodhya case verdict has ended the uncertainty on the issue and appealed to the people to maintain peace and calm. "We welcome the decision of the Supreme Court. It has cleared the uncertainty that was there in the country," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.  

He refused to speak on what BJP expects would be the verdict of the High Court in the Ayodhya title suits.  "We will wait for the judgement to come and then react. We are not expecting or anticipating anything... I cannot pre-judge the judgement," Javadekar said.  The party also appealed to the people to maintain law and order.  

"There is a legal process ahead also (after the title suit verdict of HC). We appeal to the people to maintain peace and calm in the country and are hopeful they will do so," he said. The senior leader maintained that he did not see a possibility of people breaking the law. Another party spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said the party did not desire any legal delay on the issue and hence welcomed dismissal of the deferment plea.  

"We certainly welcome the Supreme Court decision. The party has already stated its position that it does not desire any legal delay and this verdict of the apex court has cleared the way for the verdict to be pronounced by the High Court," Sitharaman told PTI.  

BJP had held a meeting of its top brass last week and made a public statement that judicial delays of the last 61 years had prevented construction of a Ram temple at Ayodhya. It had also expressed the hope that there would be no further legal delay in the case.  

Javadekar said the party did not intend to hold any meeting on today's verdict of the Supreme Court and will decide the future course of action after the High Court judgement. PTI
