On October 5, 1993, the CBI, in a composite charge sheet before the Special Court, had accused 21 top BJP and Sangh Parivar leaders, including Mr. Advani and Mr. Joshi, of criminal conspiracy. Pronouncing the judgment, Justice Nariman said that since Kalyan Singh is now the Governor of Rajasthan and enjoys constitutional immunity from being prosecuted, the trial court would proceed against him the day he ceases to be Governor. The top court has mandated that the trial has to be completed within two years and this matter will be heard in the Lucknow court. "The BJP is committed to the construction of a grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya within the framework of the Constitution", he said.

Meanwhile, BJP MP Vinay Katiyar said that there is no need for Uma Bharti to resign in the wake of apex court ruling as the charges against her are "baseless".

Kalyan Singh, a senior leader who was the chief minister at the time of demolition is protected.
