Hubli (Karnataka) [India], Nov 9 (ANI): Union Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Pralhad Joshi welcomed the Supreme Court's judgement in the Ayodhya land case on Saturday, stating that the decision should be accepted by everyone for the growth of the country.

Speaking to ANI, Joshi said that keeping in mind the traditions of India, every citizen should respect the decision and maintain peace for their own good.

"A lot of emotions are attached to the case. Now that the court has given its verdict, everyone should accept it and move ahead for the growth of our country," he added.

In a unanimous decision, a Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court on Saturday said that a Central government-run trust will help the construction of a temple at 2.77 acres at the disputed site in Ayodhya and directed five-acre plot to be allotted to Sunni Waqf Board for construction of a mosque.

A five-judge constitution bench presided by Chief Justice Gogoi and comprising Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer passed the order on a bunch of petitions against an order of the Allahabad High Court which trifurcated the site between the parties -- Ramlalla Virajman, Sunni Central Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhara.
