BHARATIYA Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah has asked the Samajwadi Party(SP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Congress to make their stand public on the construction of Ram temple at his birth place in Ayodhya. Addressing a public rally at Aligarh on Wednesday, Shah said the BJP is committed to a grand temple to Lord Ram at the very site where he is believed to have been born by millions of Hindus. “BJP’s stand is clear that Ram Temple will be built in that very place in Ayodhya. The SP, BSP and, Congress should clear their stand, whether they want the construction of Ram Mandir or not,” he said. The Centre had on Tuesday approached the Supreme Court for permission to restore the “excess” land surrounding the disputed portion in Ayodhya to Ram Janambhoomi Nyas.The government, in a petition, sought directions for releasing the 67 acres which it had acquired about two and a half decades ago leaving untouched the 0.313 acres of disputed land. The Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute has been pending before the apex court for the last eight years. For a long time, parties in the case and various right-wing organisations had been asking for an early or day-to-day hearing on the case. To stall construction of the proposed temple, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal, who was representing the Sunni Waqf Board, had filed a plea to postpone hearings in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute till the Lok Sabha elections are completed in mid- May 2019. Congress is only putting one hurdle after another to delay the case, he alleged.
