Have patience, Ram temple will be built in Ayodhya, says Adityanath

Addressing a 'sant sammelan' (seers' meet) in Ayodhya, Adityanath said, "We live in the biggest democracy of the world and in this system, the judiciary, the executive and the legislature have their own roles. We have to keep in mind those norms"



Lucknow: Raising the heat on the Ayodhya issue ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said Monday that “there should be no doubt” that a temple will be built at the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid site.
Stressing that the government was bound by democratic norms, Adityanath urged the Hindu seers to show patience on the issue of construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya.
Addressing a “Sant Sammelan” in Ayodhya, Adityanath said: “Maryada Purushotam Ram iss brahmand ke swami hain. Swabhavik roop se Ayodhya mein jab prabhu Ram ki kripa hogi toh Ayodhya mein bhagwan Ram ka bhavya mandir banke hi rahega… ismein koi sandeh hona hi nahin chahiye (Lord Ram is the master of this universe. It is obvious that when Ayodhya has his blessings, the Ram temple would be built in Ayodhya… there should be no doubt about this).”
This is the first time in the recent past that Adityanath has spoken so strongly in favour of the temple’s construction.


His remarks came after Ram Vilas Vedanti, one of the participants and a member of the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas declared on the dais that they would start construction of the temple without waiting for a court order. Assuring the gathering that he was one of them, Adityanath said: “You have shown so much patience so far, you should show patience for some more time.”

Warning of a conspiracy to create hurdles in the way of building the temple, Adityanath said: “On one hand, they file an application in court to ensure that the hearing does not take place before 2019. On the other hand, they talk of BJP not doing anything in the direction. Ultimately, whether it’s the BJP or any government, efforts will be made to find a solution in a Constitutional way.”

In a veiled attack on the Congress, the BJP leader said, “On one hand, a senior leader had submitted in the Supreme Court that the hearing in the Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Masjid issue should be held after the 2019 Lok Sabha election, while on the other hand, some Congress leaders are saying the BJP is doing nothing on the Ram temple issue. Is it not the case that when the issue is heading towards a solution, these people are hatching other conspiracies?”

On Ayodhya, the chief minister said, “Ayodhya has been ignored for years. We had forgotten our pilgrimage place. There was no effort to keep the place clean and it did not even have the basic facilities. No effort was made to give it a global recognition. We had organised a grand celebration to give it a global recognition and also made basic facilities available here.”
