Gorakhpur and Phulpur elections BJP would question again whether BJP election issue once again to the issue of Ram Temple in general elections due next year, Uttorpradesh political aisle after losing a surprise party?
Subramaniam Swamy, leader of the party’s mouthpiece, gives the answer, “If it goes without Ram temple, then there will be a definite hitting.”
The disputed parties had approached the Supreme Court in 2010 in response to the judgment made by the Allahabad High Court on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case. A Bench of three judges of the Allahabad High Court had given a verdict with a majority of two-one that the land would be divided equally among the three parties – Sunni Waqf Board, Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lala.
With the aim of changing the construction of the Ram temple in reality, Swamy had filed a petition before the Supreme Court for forming a party in the ongoing trial in this connection.
The Supreme Court dismissed all interference applications in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute, which included the applications of film producers Aparna Sen, Shyam Benegal and Human rights activist Teesta Setalvad.
Regarding the petition of Subramaniam Swamy only, the court said that it will now be listed as a separate petition. According to the court it can be filed later in the court.
Swami from BBC Hindi said that his demand is related to the spirit. According to him, the trial going on in the court is related to property ownership, but his petition is related to faith. They should get the fundamental right to pray in Ram’s place of birth.
It is not yet certain when the hearing on his petition will begin, but he is certain that his case will be decided before the ongoing trial in the Supreme Court on this issue.
The construction of Ram temple has always been a part of BJP’s election manifesto, but the party has always been blamed of not implementing it seriously.
It is also against the party that it has used this issue only to win elections. It is in its advantage to keep this issue alive.
Where Subramanian Swamy considers Swamy Ram Mandir as a matter of faith, human rights activist Teesta Setalvad says that ‘Hindutva Parivar‘ has transformed it into a political matter.
