Nitish Accuses BJP of Politicizing Ram Mandir Issue


PATNA: Newly elected Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday said BJP was playing ‘politics’ in the name of lord Ram in reference to RSS chief Mohan Bhagawat on the ram temple Issue. “BJP has been playing politics in the name of Ram and it has nothing to do with faith (shraddha) in him,” Nitish told media.

The chief minister said BJP was keen to keep alive the issue of building a Ram temple at Ayodhya for the sake of political gain.

“BJP leaders talk about Ram temple but they failed to remember the dates of court hearing in this connection.”

The Ram temple issue could be solved only through negotiations between the two communities.

“By giving political colour to the Ram temple issue, sentiments have been inflamed till date.”
