Amit Shah said BJP wants Ram temple at earliest, Congress creating obstracles
The BJP wants the Ram temple in Ayodhya to be constructed at the earliest. At Ramlila Maidan BJP president Amit Shah asserted at the party’s national convention on Friday and accused the Congress of putting “hurdles” in resolution of the issue.
Shah’s reiteration of the party’s stand on the issue in his inaugural address drew the most enthusiastic response from thousands of its members, underscoring its resonance with the saffron party’s rank and file.
“The Bharatiya Janata Party wants the Ram temple constructed at the earliest at the same site of Ayodhya. Let there be no doubt,” Amit Shah said.
Party chief asserted that the party is making all efforts to ensure that the matter is resolved in the Supreme Court as soon as possible. The court is adjudicating on the Ram temple title case and has fixed January 29 as the next date of hearing.
Accusing the Congress of creating hurdles in early resolution of the matter in the court, Shah asked the opposition party to make its stand clear on the matter.
In presence of top party leaders at the convention including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Shah said the BJP wants the issue to be resolved constitutionally. According to party source this statement may effect the 2019 eletion.
Hindutva organisations RSS, have repeatedly expressed their frustration at the “delay” in the case. Party have demanded that the Modi government bring a law to pave the way for the temple’s construction at the site in Ayodhya, considered to be the birth place of Lord Ram.
