The court observes that the case has lost momentum with the passage of time and, in light of the 2019 Ayodhya verdict, the matter has lost significance as well.

The contempt matter against Kalyan Singh and others was started because the UP government allowed the Rath Yatra and the Babri Masjid demolition, despite giving assurance of protection by the government.

The apex court has closed these cases since it has been more than 30 years and the petitioner and the former chief minister are no longer alive.

Other cases arising out of the demolition are not affected.
