Wait till Diwali for good news on Ram Mandir, says UP BJP chief

After Supreme Court delayed the hearing on Ayodhya land dispute, demands are being made for government intervention to build the Ram Mandir at Lord Ram's birthplace.

Intensifying the debate on whether the government will take a parliamentary or ordinance route to build a Ram temple at Ayodhya, UP BJP chief Mahendra Nath Pandey has asked to wait for good news to be announced during Diwali. He said that Yogi Adityanath is also a spiritual leader apart from being chief minister, and he has prepared plans for Ayodhya. He also added it will be good if the plan is revealed by the chief minister, hinting at some ‘good news’ at the time of Diwali.

Pandey reminded that last year, the Yogi government had organised a grand Diwali celebration, and people of the country had loved that. Likewise, the CM has made such plans for this year also, which will be revealed during Diwali, he said.

The debate on building a Ram temple at Ayodhya has resurfaced after the Supreme Court refused to hear the case in the matter, saying that they will decide the hearing dates in January only. It was seen by many as delaying the matter until the end of 2019 Lok Sabha elections, a demand Congress party was making.

Since then, many people are demanding that the Government take proactive steps to build the temple, instead of waiting for a judgement from the Supreme Court. Yesterday, BJP MP Rakesh Sinha had announced that he will move a private member bill in the parliament seeking construction of the temple.

Heating up the debate further, today RSS general secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi said that Supreme Court’s decision to defer hearing on the Ayodhya dispute was an “insult” to Hindu sentiments. He said that the wait for a decision from the court on the issue has been very long. He said, “A legal sanction is required to pave way for construction of the temple. The wait for the court’s verdict has been too long. Since the matter was listed on October 29, we felt Hindus would get good news before Diwali.”

Joshi also said that RSS was ready to carry out a similar campaign like the rath yatra in 1992 demanding the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. “The court said its priorities are different. Because of this, Hindus feel insulted. It is surprising that the feelings of crores of Hindus are not a priority for the court,” Joshi had added.
