Bulandshahr : Union Minister Mahesh Sharma said that the ruling NDA government in centre was totally committed to building the Ram Temple at Ayodhya but would wait for the Supreme Court verdict or arrive at a ‘mutual understanding’ on constructing the temple. Calling it as the ‘dream’ of the people of the country, a dream which is woven around the expectations that Ram Mandir be built as early as possible, Sharma said — Our party and government have already given their mandate on this issue. We want to build Ram Mandir but we will either follow the Supreme Court’s order or would come at a common conclusion about constructing the Mandir. This is why it is taking time.
The Minister, while speaking at a function, added — BJP is committed to build Ram Temple and even the people of the country want that the Ram Temple should be established. But the issue is pending in court. Till an order is issued or mutual understanding arrived at, BJP should follow the situation and even I am not authorized to speak on this topic. Our senior party leader or government will take decision.
The Minister further added that a grand museum would soon take shape in the land of Ayodhya. He said — A grand museum is being constructed in Ayodhya. The Centre has given its nod to a Rs. 170 crore Ram Van Gaman Path project which will depict Lord Rama’s ideals.
Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi had earlier stressed that the Ram Mandir issue was in court, and politics had no role to play on this matter. He had said, ‘The Ram Mandir issue is in court. Steps will be taken on the direction of the court and this is a non-political issue.’
