Singh’s statement comes a few days before Shiv Sena chief UddhavThackeray’s rally to Ayodhya to hold up the Ram Mandir debate.
New Delhi| As the Ram Mandir construction fire gets more fuelled, several politicians are jumping in the fray to comment on the issue. On Wednesday, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh weighed in on the issue. Talking to media, he said that everyone will be happy if Ram Mandir is built in Ayodhya.
However, he quickly added that the construction of the temple should be undertaken in a good atmosphere. His statements come a few days before BJP‘s ally in state and centre Shiv Sena’s rally to Ayodhya to hold up the Ram Mandir debate. VHP is also supporting and participating in the rally.
Shivsena Chief Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said, “Har Hindu ki Yahi pukaar, Pehle Mandir Fir Sarkar.” The new slogan coined by Uddhav Thackeray ahead of his Ayodhya visit calls for the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya before the formation of government in 2019.
With this slogan, the Shivsena has taken another jibe at its ally in the state and central government-BJP. Uddhav Thackeray’s Ayodhya visit is largely seen as an attempt to bring the Ram Temple issue to the table once again before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
