UP Cabinet congratulates CM on Ayodhya verdict

Members of the Uttar Pradesh Cabinet on Monday congratulated Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on the Supreme Court's judgement on the vexed Ayodhya issue.

In the first Cabinet meeting held after the apex court verdict on the centuries-old dispute, the legislators also thanked the people of the state for helping in maintaining peace and order.

In a historic and unanimous verdict, a five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi on Saturday cleared the way for the construction of a Ram temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya. The bench also directed the Centre to allot a five-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.
