Shimla, Dec 11 (UNI) BJP's national president Rajnath Singh today refuted the charge that the party had back tracked on the Ram temple issue and was raising it only at the time of polls, asserting that it would construct a grand temple at a Ayodhya when returned with clear majority at the Centre.
Mr Singh, who had to call of his public meetings at Shillai in Sirmaur district and Nerva in Chopal constituency due to inclement weather, told mediapersons here that the BJP was in favour of construction of temple through consensus or court verdict and if it was not feasible the party would fulfill its promise when given full majority.
Asserting that it would not allow the Ram Sethu project to be executed, he launched a blistering attack on the Congress for questioning very existence of Lord Rama.
''For the first time in the history of the country, any government had raised such a controversy which had negated the cultural ethos of the entire country,'' he said.
Why did Mahatma Gandhi gave the concept of Ram Rajya, why did he recite ''Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram'' and why did he utter ''hey Rama'' after being hit by the bullet if there was no existence of Lord Ram, he questioned.
The BJP leader blamed the Congress for all the ills of the country and said that corruption, price rise and terrorism had become synonymous with the Congress rule.
