Welcoming the decision, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said the court verdict proved the maxim 'Satyamev Jayate' or truth prevails. He further stated that the verdict proved that various Hindu leaders and seers were "falsely implicated" by the then Congress government at the Centre, which was driven by its policy of political appeasement as he urged the party to "apologise for its deeds" after the court judgment.
