New Delhi, Feb 7: With few days ahead of Lok Sabha Polls, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Chief, Rajnath Singh has raised the Ayodhya issue and said that the party would be building a magnificent temple for Lord Rama at Ayodhya.
"Jahan tak Ram Janambhoomi ka sawal hai, koi ma ka lal Bhagwan Ram me hamari aastha aur nishta ko diga nahi sakta (No one can shake BJP's faith and reverence to Lord Ram)," he said in his inaugural speech at the two-day National Council meeting that began on Saturday, Feb 7.
Rajnath's statements led to chants of 'Jai Shri Ram' by the gathered party workers and leaders.
He lamented that the Congress-led coalition Government from past five years has done nothing to solve the Ramjanmabhoomi issue.
He said if the party comes to power it would work towards an effective solution of the vexed issue and could even set up a fast-track court and could take other measures after taking allies into confidence.
"The day BJP will get a clear majority we will, if necessary, bring a law on the issue," he said.
Reacting to Rajnath's statement, Congress party termed it as a 'political sham'.
"BJP does not intend to build it, they are fooling the people," AICC General Secretary in Charge of Media Cell, Tom Vadakkan, said.
"They never build the temple when they are in power," he added.
