Watch: Ayodhya residents welcome the Ram Janmabhoomi verdict

Public opinion and survey company Jan Ki Baat CEO Pradip Bhandari spoke to various people in Ayodhya asking them their reaction on the Supreme Court verdict.

The Supreme Court today, in a historical judgement, pronounced that the erstwhile disputed land in Ayodhya is now officially the Ram Janmabhoomi. The Supreme Court also added that the Central Government will create a trust and hand over construction of temple to the trust. A 5 acre land has been allotted to Muslim parties where a mosque would be built.

Public opinion and survey company Jan Ki Baat CEO Pradip Bhandari spoke to various people in Ayodhya asking them their reaction on the Supreme Court verdict.


People in Basti district expressing their happiness at the verdict said that they are very happy that a temple will be built. Speaking to OpIndia, Pradip Bhandari said he was lucky to be in Ayodhya with his team on the day the historic judgement was pronounced. “We decided to go to Ayodhya from Delhi for the verdict. Our cab broke down, there was puncture, then our driver was falling asleep while driving. Finally we decided to let him sleep and drove till Lucknow on our own. From Lucknow, our driver woke up, refreshed and finally took us to Ayodhya,” Bhandari recalled the hurdles his team had to overcome to reach the Ram Janmabhoomi on the historic day.

“When the judgement was being pronounced, we were thinking it might be a balanced verdict but when we reached the conclusion, we got to know that the entire land has been given to Ram Lalla,” he said.


A youth, whose family has been living in Ayodhya since almost 4 decades was happy that more people will visit their town. Bhandari further said he and his team spoke to scores of people who have been living in Ayodhya since years, who expressed elation at the verdict.


One Anoop, who has been living in Ayodhya since past 8 years, said that they have been waiting since years for the verdict and are happy that a temple will be constructed.

People in Ayodhya have also lit up lamps welcoming the verdict. “This judgement shows how entire country can come together,” Bhandari said. “Every other house in Ayodhya had lit up with diyas. One lady was lighting up diyas. I walked up to her and she said that we live in fans and air conditioning but Ram Lalla lived in a tent. That is when I realised the verdict meant much more,” he added.


As per Hindu tradition, Diwali, which was celebrated on 27th October, marks the return of Lord Ram to Ayodhya after spending 14 years in exile.
