Address the country in his monthly Mann Ki Baat programme, he said, “A protracted legal battle has finally come to an end, on the other hand, the respect for the judiciary has grown in the country. In the truest sense, this verdict has also proved to be a milestone for the judiciary in our country.” He added that after this historic verdict of the Supreme Court, the country has moved ahead on a new path, with a new resolve and full of new hopes and aspirations. In his last Man Ki Baat address as well, PM Modi had spoke about the Ayodhya case and urged the people to maintain peace. He had also recalled how political parties and the civil society played a role in uniting people when efforts were made to polarise the country ahead of the 2010 Allahabad High Court ruling on the Ayodhya land dispute.
