Shiv Sena demands ordinance on construction of Ram temple

The controversial Ram temple issue was raised in the Lok Sabha by NDA ally Shiv Sena on Thursday, who demanded the government to bring an ordinance to pave way for its construction in Ayodhya. Shiv Sena's Anand Rao Adsul raised the issue during the Zero Hour and reminded the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) about its promise on the construction of temple, in the party’s election manifesto in 2014.

"The government should take initiative to bring an ordinance and pave the way for construction of Ram temple at Ayodhya before the next general elections," he said.

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan allowed the Shiv Sena leader to raise the issue soon after the House met after two brief adjournments during Question Hour.

Adsul said former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee could not take the initiative for the construction of Ram temple as he was running a coalition government of 25 political parties.

"But here is a government which has absolute majority. They have mentioned in their manifesto too. Four-and-a-half years of this government has already passed but nothing has happened. Our alliance with BJP is based on Hindutva but it seems the BJP has forgotten it," he said.

The results of the five states are an indication and the government should understand it, Adsul said.

The House was later adjourned for the day after two brief adjournments during Question Hour as the opposition parties created pandemonium over several issues, including the Rafale fighter jet deal.
