JD(U) will not support an ordinance for Ram Temple in Ayodhya, says senior party leader

Lakhs of people from all over the country had thronged to the Ramleela Maidan on December 9 to attend the Dharm Sabha and demanded the construction of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.

BJP’s Bihar associate JD(U) has explicitly said that it will not support the promulgation of an ordinance on temple construction at the Ram Janmabhoomi site in Ayodhya.

Responding to a question that some organisations have been demanding an ordinance for building the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, JD(U) national general secretary and its leader in the Rajya Sabha, Ram Chandra Prakash Singh said, “different demands are raised by people in this country. But JD(U) neither supports the idea of bringing an ordinance for Ram Temple nor will support it if brought in Parliament.”

He furthered that the party will stick to its stand that the issue should be either solved by mutual consent or decided by a court of law.

RCP Singh, speaking about the recent five-state assembly polls, clarified that the defeat BJP faced in the three states during assembly elections will not have any effect on the 2019 general elections.

Earlier, the party’s recently appointed Vice-President, Prashant Kishor had also stated that the BJP would anyways win the elections (2019 polls) without taking recourse to this issue, as it did in 2014.

The state BJP unit, however, countered its alliance partner to say that a “temple would be constructed soon” as it has been part of BJP’s manifesto.

BJP has been facing constant demands from members of the Sangh Parivar, which BJP is also a part of, and a section of its own party insisting on the construction of the Ram Temple. The Sangh has been lately pressurising the government to bring an ordinance in the Parliament regarding the same.

The RSS and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad have intensified their demands for an ordinance in recent weeks. As the winter session of the parliament was about to begin, lakhs of people from all over the country had thronged to the Ramleela Maidan on December 9 to attend the Dharm Sabha and demanded the construction of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.
