In view of all-out pressure from Hindu organisations to bring a bill facilitating construciton of Ram Mandir at Ayodhya, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to take a decision in this regard after December 11, when the election code for assembly elections in five states end.
Prominent Hindu seer Swami Rambhadracharya claimed that a senior Union minister had informed him that a high-level meeting would be held on the issue after Dec 11, wherein a decision would be taken on the issue.
“I am hopeful that a legislation will come for temple construction. The government will respect our sentiments — this is what a senior most minister told me. He has asked me to keep patience,”Rambhadracharya said, quoting one of the ministers in Modi Cabinet.
He also claimed that RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has ssured him of action. “He assured me that the government will be pressurised for legislation in Parliament for temple construction,”Rambhadracharya, who heads a Chitrakoot-based organisation, said.
Earlier the working president of the Ram Mandir Nyas Board, Ram Vilas Vedanti had claimed that the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya will begin before the Lok Sabha Election 2019. He also added that the work will start with the consensus of both Hindus and Muslims.
“We do not want any bloodshed and want to build a grand Ram mandir over 67 acres of land in Ayodhya with the consensus of all, including the Muslims. Negotiations are going on in this regard and the construction work for a grand Ram temple will start anytime in December,” he added.
