Ram temple in Ayodhya not a poll issue for BJP: Prasad
Jodhpur, Jun 7: Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today said the Ram temple in Ayodhya was never an election issue for BJP and would never be in any other poll.
"Ram temple was never an issue for BJP in any election campaign nor would it be in future polls. This is an issue related to religious faith and would be resolved amicable between Hindus and Muslims," he said when asked if the Ram temple would be an issue in the forthcoming elections in Uttar Pradesh.
He also said resolving the issue amicably would be a better option. Prasad, who was here on a two-day visit to mark the completion of two years of the Narendra Modi government, released a brochure highlighting the achievements of the government.
Asked about the problem of call-drop, the Union minister for Information and Broadcasting assured that the problem would be resolved soon as the government is going to allocate new spectrum, worth Rs 2000 crore, very soon.
On the emission of radiation from mobile towers, Prasad said the fear of emission of radiation or hazardous waves from the mobile towers was unfounded. "A recent study by the World Health Organisation (WHO) has proved that these towers have no perilous effect on the health or brain, per se, of a human being," Prasad said.
He called upon people not be scared of the mobile towers and cooperate in installation of the towers to enhance the network so that the telecommunication and internet services could be improved and expanded.
