“If BJP wants to win the elections, it must start building the temple, otherwise it will be very difficult for them”.

The remark by the Ram Janmabhoomi chief priest came hours after Chawani temple priest Mahant Paramhans Das threatened to start a movement against the BJP if construction of Ram temple did not start on immediate basis.
Mahant Paramhans Das hit out at the ruling BJP in reaction to Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi saying that Hindutva and Ram Mandir were not the primary issues for the party for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Naqvi had said that the BJP would contest the General Elections on the issue of development.
The final hearing in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute is pending before the Supreme Court at present. The top court is hearing as many as 13 appeals filed against the 2010 judgement of the Allahabad High Court in four civil suits. The petitions challenge the high court verdict that mandated a three-way division of the disputed site in Ayodhya.
