Panaji, May 26: Union minister Shripad Naik today said the government is ready to aid the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.

"The government is ready to help in the construction of Ram Mandir (at Ayodhya). But the issue should be resolved mutually (amicably). The government can provide help, but the actual construction should be done by organisations which are fighting for it," Naik said responding to a question during a press conference here.
