    Lucknow, Feb 26: The Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) tryst with the Ram temple continues. The Supreme Court is yet to give a final verdict on the matter, but that has not stopped BJP leaders from frequently issuing statements regarding the building of the Ram temple at the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid site in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh.

    On Sunday, controversial BJP MP Vinay Katiyar said that the Ram temple in Ayodhya will be constructed on the spot where "Ram Lala" is resting. "I will not comment on how long it will take as the issue is now being heard by the Supreme Court," Katiyar told reporters in Barabanki, UP.

    "We are waiting for the court's verdict, but I will like to say that our Ram temple, for sure, will come up at the place where Ram Lala is resting...he (Ram idol) will continue (to remain) on the spot," he said, adding, "That land belongs to Lord Ram."

    To a question, Katiyar said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were together working dedicatedly for the country and the state.
    "Criminals are surrendering before the police on their own under the Yogi government," he added.

    Recently, the controversial Rajya Sabha MP said that "Muslims should not even be living in this country, they should go to Pakistan or Bangladesh". Katiyar, who founded the Vishwa Hindu Parishad's (VHP) youth wing, Bajrang Dal, added that a bill should be introduced in Parliament that frames a punishment for those "who do not respect Vande Mataram, (and) those who insult the national flag, or hoist the Pakistani flag."
