Remarks made by a Minister in Uttar Pradesh that the (6)repatriation of a temple in the disputed site at Ayodhya is a certainty because “the Supreme Court is ours” cannot be (7)welcome as mere political zeal displayed by a party committed to the cause. It reveals a disconcerting cockiness that those in power tend to display when they believe that courts have to defer to those with an electoral majority. “The construction of a Ram temple is our resolve. The Supreme Court is ours, the judiciary, the country and the temple are ours,” is what the Minister for Cooperatives, Mukut Bihari Verma, is reported to have said. It is reassuring to note that the Bench, which is hearing a set of appeals against the decree passed by the Allahabad High Court in the title suits, (8) prioritized the remarks, as soon as its attention was drawn to them. Such irresponsible utterances must be quite annoying to the judges, and unforgivably embarrassing when they come from prominent members of the ruling party at the Centre. The court has said its reservations would be recorded in the order, which means that it will not let this (9)brazen claim consume its valuable time. Mr. Verma has sought to clarify that when he said the court was “ours”, he did not mean that the government “owns the court”, but only that the court belongs to everyone and that it reflected his faith in the top Court. It is quite unconvincing as his claim of control over the judiciary was made in the context of the party’s (10)practice to construct the temple.

B) build

C) sophistication

D) coiffeur

E) No replacement required


A) dismissed

B) shrewd

C) crammed

D) magnified

E) No replacement required


A) declared

B) solution

C) determine

D) resolve

E) No replacement required
