The BJP's demand to construct a Ram temple in Ayodhya, at the site where the Babri Masjid once stood, will be 'honoured' after the party gets a majority in Parliament, UP unit chief Surya Pratap Sahi said in Mathura on Thursday.
"Ram temple will be constructed when the Bhartiya Janata Party gets an absolute majority in Parliament," Sahi said in Vrindaban.
He said "Ayodhya, Mathura and Kashi had significance for the majority of Hindus."
Sahi blamed the "Congress, SP and BSP for the poor state of country and Uttar Pradesh."
"The state has suffered a lot during the last 10 years. The law and order situation is at its lowest and ladies are not safe even though a woman is the Chief Minister," he said.
"No one is bothering about the problems of farmers. The power situation is also not good."
Sahi said that for redressal of these problems, the party has decided to launch a week-long agitation from June 3.
On price rise, the BJP leader alleged that the state government and the Centre were blaming each other while the fact was that no sincere effort had been made to control it by either.
Taking potshots at Mayawati, he said, "Her income is increasing in proportion to that of Ambani brothers while she does not run an industry. The garland of currency cannot become her personal income, instead it may go to party fund."
