Indore: BJP vice president Prabhat Jha on Tuesday said construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya is not an election issue and claimed his party will ensure it is built. Speaking to reporters here, Jha also said since the issue was being heard in Supreme Court, it could not be brought up in Parliament.
“Construction of Ram Temple at Ayodhya is not an election issue. The demand for construction of temple was coming from the bottom of country’s heart. The issue would linger on till the temple is built,” Jha said Tuesday. “The BJP will get Ram temple constructed at Ayodhya.
As the Ram temple issue is being heard in the Supreme Court, the matter can’t be brought in Parliament,” he claimed, adding that there should be no politicking over it.Taking a swipe at opposition parties, Jha said, “Will political parties like Samajwadi Party and BSP get the temple built? Congress president Rahul Gandhi should clear his stance whether his party can get the Ram temple constructed.” Replying to a query, Jha claimed that Congress chief had “totally failed” in Rafale fight jet purchase issue and alleged the latter was flaunting “fake papers” and speaking lies on it.
