‘Faith of country is in the court and there will be a win’: UP Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya on Ram Mandir

Uttar Pradesh Keshav Prasad Maurya on Sunday said that even parties like BSP, SP and Congress who are opposing the Ram Mandir don't have the guts to build a memorial for Babur in the country.

As the Supreme Court begins to hear the Ram Janmabhumi-Babri Masjid title case from today, the political debate around it has already started as the Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Keshav Prasad Maurya on Sunday told Times of India that even parties like BSP, SP and Congress who are opposing the Ram Mandir don’t have the guts to build a memorial for Babur in the country.

Reportedly, UP Deputy CM Maurya while speaking to the media, referring to the opposition parties of Bahujan Samajwadi Party, Samajwadi Party and Congress said that no one in the country does not want to build a structure named after Mughal emperor Babur in Ayodhya.

“I think no one would want a Babri structure in Ayodhya for sure. As a responsible government, we will respect the sentiments of the people… As of now, our hopes rest on the court,” Maurya added.

Keshav Prasad Maurya also expressed his hope regarding a positive judgement by the Supreme Court on the Ram temple issue. “The faith of country is in the court and there will be a win. Ram Lalla wasn’t born in Kolkata or Delhi. It was in Ayodhya that he was born. It doesn’t need rocket science to establish that,” Maurya said.

He added that he is hopeful that the Supreme Court will provide a solution to the issue which is a matter of faith for millions of people. He also hinted at taking the legislation course if courts are unable to give a judgment. “If courts and consensus fail, the option of bringing in legislation on the construction of temple would be taken,”  Maurya said in Lucknow.

The statements from the Deputy CM Maurya comes a day after Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had told a gathering that if Supreme Court can give a judgement on Sabarimala, it should also give its order in Ram temple case.

The Supreme Court in its earlier judgement had ruled against referring the Ram Janambhoomi case to a larger bench to revisit the 1994 judgement. The Supreme Court will constitute a three-judge bench to hear the Ayodhya land title suit starting from October 29.
