‘Congress should not create obstacles,’ PM Modi on Ram Temple issue in an interview to ANI

Blaming the Congress for delaying the construction of Ram Temple, PM Modi said, "Nobody can deny that those sitting in the governments in the last 70 years have tried their best to stall a solution to this Ayodhya issue."

Prime Minister Modi in an interview to the news agency ANI said that the decision on an ordinance on the Ram temple will only be brought after the judicial procedure is concluded. He added that the judicial procedure for the temple is being stalled in the Supreme Court since Congress lawyers are ‘slowing down the process’.

He asserted that the BJP in its manifesto had also mentioned that the solution to the Ram temple issue would be brought under the ambit of the Constitution. The BJP in its manifesto had promised a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya. Recently, in December 2018, the RSS and VHP had pitched for the Ram Temple in the ‘Dharam Sansad’ rally held in Delhi.

The sister organisations have expressed displeasure over the delay in the matter and there have been demands to bring in an ordinance, similar to Triple Talaq, to facilitate the construction of the temple. When asked whether the government is considering bringing in an ordinance on the Ram temple, Modi pointed out that the matter is before the Supreme Court and possibly in the final stages as it is slated to be heard before the Apex Court on 4th January. He said that once the judicial process is over, the government will make all necessary efforts in this matter.

When questioned why the government has not brought in an ordinance in Ram Temple issue like it did in Triple Talaq case, PM Modi said that that the Triple Talaq ordinance was brought in after the Supreme Court verdict in 2017 which banned instant triple talaq among the Muslims.

Blaming the Congress for delaying the construction of Ram Temple, PM Modi said, “Nobody can deny that those sitting in the governments in the last 70 years have tried their best to stall a solution to this Ayodhya issue.” He further added that the Congress should “not create obstacles” and let the judicial process take its own course. “For the sake of national peace and amity, they (Congress) should stop its lawyers from stalling this (Ayodhya issue) in the court,” PM Modi added.
