Etah: BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj on Friday said that Ram temple was in the party's agenda and it will be constructed before next Lok Sabha polls in 2019.
"The Ram temple will be built before next elections in 2019," the BJP leader said here. "Since the day of Pujan (worship) by Rajiv Gandhi, the work on the temple is continuous," the BJP leader claimed.
In 1985, Gandhi had ordered the removal of locks on the Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Masjid in Ayodhya. The BJP leader said that the temple at the disputed site could be constructed through everyone's cooperation.
There are some other ways also like passing a bill in Lok Sabha, he said. The BJP leader said that the Ram temple was "in our agenda".
"We regard Quran, so Muslims should also respect Geeta, Ramayan and Lord Rama. We are not against mosque then Muslims should not have any sort of uneasiness with the construction of the temple," he said.
VHP today made a strong pitch for bringing a bill in Parliament to pave the way for construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya and expressed confidence of it becoming a reality during the tenure of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
VHP leader Surendra Jain also reached out to Congress president Sonia Gandhi urging her to support the bill inside Parliament.
