Every BJP worker wants Ram temple in Ayodhya: Meenakshi Lekhi

Hyderabad: Every BJP worker wants a Ram temple to be built in Ayodhya, BJP MP and spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi said here Friday.

Asked at a press conference if an ordinance can be expected on the Ram temple issue, she said she does not have any say on the matter.

“But, I believe in one thing. Will any of you think that a person like Narendra Modi does not want Ram Mandir to be made? Anyone who has doubt about that? Anyone who doubts that Mr Amit Shah does not want a temple in Ayodhya. I think every BJP worker wants temple in Ayodhya. That is our clarity. But, since the matter is pending before the Supreme Court, it’s very difficult to give a date by which the temple will be built,” she said.

She further added: “I think we all must understand that some dispute which has been pending since …1940 and all those years. So, a longest pending dispute in the court should be decided. As a citizen of this country I seek from the court that please hear the matter. I mean there is no reason why 70 per cent of people do not have a right on their Supreme Court, cannot go to that court and seek a right of redressal. If 70 per cent of Indians do not have a right of redressal in their own Supreme Court, can that be the court.The court has to hear us.”

Lekhi was in Hyderabad to take part in BJP’s campaign for the 7 December Assembly elections in Telangana.
