“Since 1986, it has been the stand of the Samajwadi Party that the dispute should be resolved either through dialogue or through court…since the issue could not be resolved through dialogue, the SC had to give its verdict. As per Indian Constitution, accepting the Supreme Court decision is mandatory. Even this decision will be accepted by all,” Yadav said.
