Pune: Welcoming the SC verdict, MNS chief Raj Thackeray said Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray would have been very happy had he been alive. Raj, estranged nephew of the late Sena patriarch, said the verdict was the outcome of the “sacrifice” made by the karsevaks, who had participated in the Ram Janmabhoomi movement of 1990s. “Balasaheb would have been very happy had he been alive today. I would like to thank the SC for delivering this judgment on the basis of facts and emotions of the people. Ram mandir should be built as soon as possible and ‘Ramrajya’ (rule of Lord Ram) shall also be established,” he said.
