Will begin Ram temple work in 4 months: Shah

Delhi: Union Home Minister and BJP national president Amit Shah on Monday said the construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya would begin within four months. He was addressing an election rally in Jharkhand’s Pakur district. Assembly elections are currently underway in the state with the final phase scheduled for December 20. The counting of votes will be done on December 23. “Construction of a grand temple at Ram Janmabhoomi has been demanded by every Indian for a century but the Congress kept delaying the issue. Its lawyer Kapil Sibal had been urging the Supreme Court not to hear the matter as there was no urgency. Why were its leaders having cramps in their stomach,” asks Shah. The Union Home Minister further said “the Supreme Court has given its verdict. Now within four months, a temple of Lord Ram touching the sky will come up in Ayodhya.”
