Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said that the BJP will be building Ram Temple in Ayodhya very soon. Ram Mandir in Ayodhya has been a long-pending election promise of BJP and the Supreme Court's recent ruling last month has paved the way to the setting up of a trust which will be responsible for further developments on the matter.
Singh was addressing an election rally in Bokaro, Jharkhand when he pointed out that BJP is going to fulfil their promise very soon. Singh also added that this was a perfect response to all the parties who mocked BJP for adding the Ram Mandir issue in their manifesto.
"We are going to build a grand temple of Lord Ram at the birthplace of Ramlalla, as promised by us in every manifesto. Some parties used to mock us on this promise, but now none can stop us from building the temple," he told the gathering.
In a historic decision last month, the Supreme Court ruled for the building of the Ram Temple at a 2.77-acre disputed site in Ayodya, directing the Centre to set up a trust to complete the task.
The BJP leader also said that the Centre is committed to introducing the National Register of Citizens (NRC) at the national level.
He said, "We'll implement NRC across the country. Every Indian has a right to know who are the illegal immigrants in their land. Some parties find our fault in this as well, they accuse us of being communal."
He also expressed confidence that the BJP will retain power in the state with a full majority.
"It has become evident after 1st phase of polling in Jharkhand that Bharatiya Janata Party will form government in the state will full majority," he said.
