NEW DELHI: VHP working president Pravin Togadia on Monday threatened to reignite the movement for construction of Ram temple at Ayodhya if the Narendra Modi government failed to bring in a legislation in Parliament on the issue, as promised by the BJP.
At a press conference, Togadia accused the Modi government of doing a “U-turn” on the Ram temple issue. “The government had been promising to bring a law in Parliament to construct a temple at Ayodhya, since it came to office in May 2014. But in the last six months, it has been saying that the court which is hearing the issue, will resolve the matter.”
Hitting out at Modi just a month before the BJP-led government is to complete four years in office, Togadia said, “It looks like the government has gone back on its words and now the fear is that the issue will once again be raked up by the BJP only to return to power.”
