Rajnath Singh vows to construct Ram temple

With elections just a couple of months away, BJP president Rajnath Singh on Saturday said that the party was waiting for an opportunity to construct the temple at Ayodhya.

At the national executive of the party, Singh said that Ram temple remained at the top of the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) agenda. He said that laws could be framed and special fast track court set up to expedite the process and initiate the construction at the earliest.

It is being viewed as a call to the hard-core Hindutva constituency. The Prime Ministerial candidate of the party, LK Advani, also spoke on similar lines at the national executive.

Though the BJP claims that the party had never abandoned the cause, the failure in Rajasthan and Delhi assembly polls which the BJP had fought over terrorism, had sent the party into introspective mode.

But the speech at Nagpur conclave could be aimed at placating the cadre that took party in the Ram Janmabhoomi movement in the 80s and 90s. The movement had ultimately led to the demolition of the ancient Babri Masjid (mosque) in Uttar Pradesh.
