“If Congress supports us on Ram Temple then the path is open. The only obstruction in the construction of Ram Temple is Congress’ conspiracy, they are preparing to incite violence in the country,” news agency ANI quoted Uma Bharti as saying.
Meanwhile, seers in the temple town of Ayodhya on Thursday -- the 26th anniversary of Babri mosque demolition -- offered prayers and sought divine intervention for early construction of a Ram temple.
