Bharatiya Janata Party president Rajnath Singh has said he foresaw no trouble from allies on BJP’s demand for a Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
“I think there will be no problem with allies. In 2009 the BJP had already included it. BJP is of the firm opinion Ram temple has to be built at Ayodhya,” he said.
In Chennai to participate in a private leadership function, the BJP president told a news conference that his party was committed to building the Ram Temple at Ayodhya, as has always been the case.
Meanwhile, the Shiv Sena upped the ante by saying that the BJP must deliver on its promise.
“As partners in the NDA, we will have to take up a vow right from this moment to keep the promise of constructing the Ram Temple. After Babri masjid was destroyed it was only Sena chief Bal Thackeray who owned up to it, while everyone else had run away,” Shiv Sena MP and spokesperson Sanjay Raut said.
