Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is one leader who doesn't mince words while speaking his mind out. From Ram Mandir to Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's entry into politics, Yogi Adityanath spoke on a range of hot topics which are in debate in the country in IndiaTV's Aap Ki Adalat show.
Responding to a question from IndiaTV Chairman and Editor-in-Chief over the long pending Ayodhya Ram Mandir issue, the Uttar Pradesh CM said that the court should dispose the dispute soon and if it finds itself unable to do so, let the matter be handled by his government. "We will resolve the Ram Janmabhoomi dispute within 24 hours. It won't take 25 hours," Yogi Adityanath said.

Who is their leader who told the Supreme Court that the Ayodhya issue should be heard after the 2019 elections? Congress does not want the Ayodhya dispute to be resolved. If Ayodhya dispute is resolved, Triple Talaq ban is implemented, politics of appeasement in India will end forever, says Yogi Adityanath
