Controversial Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator Surendra Singh has kicked off a storm yet again by joining the chorus demand for construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya while criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for not being able to build the temple, despite holding powerful positions.
Speaking to the media on Saturday, the BJP lawmaker from Ballia said, “We have a great Prime Minister like Modi Ji and a great Chief Minister like Yogi Ji, who are both believers of Hinduism. But unfortunately, during their governance, Lord Ram stays in a tent. This is unfortunate for India and the Hindu society. One should make such a situation that Ram temple must be created in Ayodhya itself.”
Singh further said that there should be no more delay in the construction of the temple. “God is beyond the Constitution. There should be no delay. Ram Temple should be constructed in its designated place Ayodhya,” said the BJP lawmaker.
The Ballia legislator is infamous for making controversial statements causing embarrassment for BJP.
The MLA had also compared West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee with Ravana’s sister, Shurpanakha.
The Supreme Court on October 29 had adjourned the Ayodhya title suit till next year to fix a date for the hearing. The court was hearing the matter which challenged the 2010 ruling of the Allahabad High Court which divided the disputed land into three parts.
