With Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah raking up the Ram Temple issue in Ayodhya ahead of the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls scheduled next year, the Congress Party on Wednesday alleged that the saffron party was making desperate attempts to keep the issue alive for political gains.
Congress leader Pramod Tiwari asked why the BJP president is not taking action against party members who often make communal remarks in the Ayodhya issue .
“Stop such two-faced talks Amit Shah ji. If what you have said is the party’s stand then why don’t you take action against those making statements otherwise? You do not want to solve the issue, but just want to keep it alive for political gains,” Tiwari told ANI.
The BJP president, who was briefing the media in Lucknow on Tuesday,said that Ram Janmabhoomi is a part of his party’s election manifesto.
“We have specified that a Ram temple should be made on the site either after a consensus or by the directions of court. This is our firm stand,” he said.
