Saryu Roy: Jharkhand Minister and legislator Saryu Roy observed, “The unanimous decision of the Supreme Court has cleared the path for construction of Shri Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

The Supreme Court’s unanimous decision will prove to be a milestone in the path of communal harmony and amity. It will be the foundation of ‘Unity, Development and Faith of all.’
Amarpreet Singh Kale: Senior BJP leader Amarpreet Singh Kale expressing his happiness on the Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya said, “It is the nation’s victory. The unanimous Apex Court decision will ensure unity and goodwill among communities and people of all faiths in our unique form of a secular nation where a colourful cultural canvas spreads with the textures of peace, love and harmony. India is one and so it will be for generations infinite. The Supreme Court judgment has reestablished this faith and trust among our people.”
Kulwant Singh Bunty: State Khadi Board member Kulwant Singh Bunty hailed the unanimous Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya as, “A new morn that casts emphatic light on the commitment of unity, development and faith.

Rakesh Sahu: State Youth Congress secretary Rakesh Sahu welcomed the Apex Court’s decision on the Ayodhya issue.

The decision on the Shri Ram Mandir issue is being attributed by the BJP people to Narendra Modi which is an insult to Hindus.
