No majority in RS, can’t pass Ram temple law: Rajnath


Ayodhya: A dearth of majority in the Upper House of Parliament, was coming in the way of BJP to bring in a motion and make law for construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Sunday.

Construction of a Ram Temple in Ayodhya was among the promises made by BJP in its election manifesto which it had released in the run up to last year’s General elections.

Some other contentious issues like abrogation of Article 370 which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir and enactment of Uniform Civil Code were also promised in the party’s manifesto.

“BJP does not have a majority in Rajya Sabha, so this time it is not possible to bring motion in the Parliament to make law for the construction of Ram temple,” the senior BJP leader said.

He was here to take part in a programme of senior Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Nritya Gopal Das.
