On Tuesday, Faizabad district BJP Chief Awadhesh Pandey said that the option to resolve the Ayodhya issue through community dialogue is over and BJP will take legislative route to bring ordinance to build Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
Pandey said, “The chorus for bringing ordinance to build it is growing and the BJP will take a legislative route or one that is within the framework of the Constitution. The option of resolving the issue through community dialogue is now over”.
He said that people of India want the temple to be built and BJP is the only party that raises this issue for them. He said, “We reach out to people to feel their pulse at ward level, and they want that Ram temple should be built”.
BJP government is also going to erect the 151 meter high statue of Lord Ram on the bank of Saryu River in Ayodhya. Ayodhya Mayor Rishikesh Upadhyay said, “Yogiji is most likely to announce Tuesday, during ‘Deepotsav’, the plan for erecting a 151-metre statue of Lord Ram on the banks of Saryu. The place has not been finalised and it will be done after soil testing”.
Earlier Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Keshav Prasad Maurya said that grand temple of Lord Ram will be build and Ayodhya will be developed keeping in the mind the devotion and faith which Lord Ram commands.
He said, “I have clearly said time and again on the issue of construction of a temple in Ayodhya that whenever there is a verdict on Ayodhya, it is the prerogative of the Supreme Court. But a grand temple for Ram Lalla will be built. Now, it is simply impossible to install even a single stone bearing the name of Babur there”.
