BJP's commitment to building Ram temple intact: Rajnath

india Updated: Apr 29, 2009 10:46 IST

Raking up the Ram temple issue, BJP chief Rajnath Singh today said his party's commitment to building the temple in Ayodhya "remains intact" and it will be subsequently proven.

Rubbishing the charges of rivals that the saffron party has dropped the issue of Ram temple for power, he said, "This is simply a false propaganda by those who never wanted the construction of Ram Temple at Ayodhya and had even questioned the very existence of Lord Rama.

"And as far as the building of Ram Temple is concerned, our commitment for it remains intact and we will subsequently prove it," he told PTI in an interview.

On the Kandahar hijacking issue, he said, "The Congress frequently raises the issue of Kandahar hijacking only to save its skin and to mislead the people of this country. In fact, let me tell you that we were at the crossroads of allowing innocent passengers to get killed or saving them.

"The decision to release the terrorists was taken at an all party meeting and Congress was a party to the decision," he claimed.

Describing terrorism and spiralling price rise as the most important election issues, he said the people of this country will give a befitting reply to those who think that the ongoing Lok Sabha elections are "issueless".
