Lucknow, Aug 20 : Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya has revealed that Narendra Modi-led government at the centre has an option to adopt the legislative route in Parliament for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya.
“When such a need arises that there is no way out except bringing a Bill, I am fully confident that in such a situation and when we have adequate strength (in both Houses of Parliament), remember these two things,”Maurya said.
“People have faith that Supreme Court’s judgement will come soon and obstacles in the constructions of Ram Mandir will be removed. Either the judgement will come soon or we’ll find a solution through dialogue.
Third option of passing a law in the Parliament is also open, ” the deputy chief minister admitted that Modi led NDA government at the centre may opt for the legislative route in Parliament for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya.
The court will soon give its judgement. He asserted that if the grand Ram temple was built, it will be a “true tribute” to VHP stalwart Ashok Singhal, Mahant Sri Ramchandra Das Paramhans (former head of the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas in Ayodhya) and karsewaks who sacrificed their lives.
The Supreme Court later reserved its order on the plea by Muslim groups in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute seeking reconsideration by a larger bench the observations made by it in a 1994 verdict that a mosque was not integral to Islam.
On July 13, Dhavan had said that Babri Masjid was destroyed by the “Hindu Taliban” just like the demolition of the Buddha statues by the Taliban at Bamiyan in Afghanistan.
