Law Minister M Veerappa Moily on Thursday said the government would study the Ayodhya judgment first and did not feel there was any "contingency" for it to step in.
"The judgment has to be seen. Let the text of the judgment come. It is not right for me as a law minister to comment," Moily told reporters after a three-judge bench of the Allahabad High Court ruled in favour of a temple at the disputed site.
Asked what was the stand of the government, which is custodian of the site, he said: "No doubt, we are custodians of the place, but there is no contingency for us to step in."
The three-judge bench ruled in favour of a temple at the Babri Masjid-Ramjanmabhoomi site in Ayodhya.
