The Shiv Sena party leader Sanjay Raut has said that the Ram temple will be constructed under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
On construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya, Raut said, “It will be constructed in Modi and Yogi’s leadership. The BJP will decide on it. The majority in 2019 is for construction of Ram temple. In Rajya Sabha too we will get majority by 2020.”
“Ramlala is not a subject for politics but it is a matter of our faith. We have not sought votes in the name of Ram and will not do so in future. When he (Uddhav) visited Ayodhya in November he promised to come again after elections. He is fulfilling his promise,” Raut said during a press conference in Ayodhya.
“It is everybody’s wish that Ram Mandir must be constructed,” he had said after unveiling a seven-foot Ram statue at a museum in the city.
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray Sunday offered prayers at the makeshift Ram Lalla temple along with his son Aditya and 18 newly-elected lawmakers of his party.
“The case is in court for many years. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has courage. If the government takes the decision, there is no one to stop it. Not only Shiv Sena, Hindus of the whole world are also with this,” Uddhav said, while addressing a press conference after his visit to the Ram Lalla temple.
“The government should bring an ordinance for construction of Ram temple. The issue concerns all Hindus and the temple has to be constructed at the earliest,” he said, raising the slogan of “kanoon banao, mandir banao (formulate law and construct temple)”.
