The BJP has said the party was “not at all apologetic” about the demolition of the “disputed structure” in Ayodhya in 1992.
“The party is not at all apologetic about the incident of demolition of a disputed structure as it had not committed any mistake,” BJP president Rajnath Singh said in an interview with RSS mouthpiece Organiser.
Reiterating BJP’s commitment towards building Ram Temple in Ayodhya, he said, “Whatever happened in Ayodhya was the outburst of sentiments of the masses. It is not apt to hurt the sentiments of the masses.”
On media reports about indiscipline in the party, Singh said, “There may be indiscipline at the individual level, but there is no scope for indiscipline in the party.”
When asked about questions being raised on BJP’s ideology by leaders from outside party platform, he said, “Disciplinary action would be taken against those who are found to be not following the ideology of the party.”
“They (party members) should have a strong binding of the party’s ideology on them and adhere to the party ideology,” he added.
