The Ram Temple issue has once again raised its heads, with the 2019 Lok Sabha elections around the corner. On Monday, as aggressive Hindu seers took on CM Yogi Adityanath in Ayodhya saying that they will not wait for a court order to start construction of the temple, the CM has advocated “patience” and said that all those supporting the construction of the temple have to work within the bounds of “Maryada”.
“We are living in the world’s biggest democracy where legislation and judiciary have a role to play. We must keep Maryada in mind. When Lord Ram decides to bless us, the temple will be made. There is no point in harboring any doubt. I fully support your demand. I come from the Gorakhnath Reeth that has given three generations to this cause. It is your government in the state and in the Centre. The temple will be built, but we need to be patient,” Yogi said, trying instead to counter the demand for the temple with the development of Ayodhya & other Hindu religious sites in UP.
According to the sources the birthday celebrations of Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, saw seers in such an aggressive mode over the temple construction issue after a long gap in which they said that if despite Yogi as CM in the state and Narendra Modi as Pm the temple did not get built, they would not have a face to show in the 2019 elections. In a passionate speech, former MP Ram Vilas Vedanti said that the construction of the Ram temple did not need a court order and would definitely start before 2019 election.
He said,”We will not wait for a court to make the temple. When Babur built the mosque, he didn’t wait for a court order. When in 1949 Ram Lalla appeared, he didn’t wait for a court order either. In 1992, when we got the foundation demolished, it didn’t happen on a court order. If the order comes, then good. If not, even the temple will be built. Its construction will start all of a sudden. It will take time to build the temple, but construction will start before 2019.”
