Lucknow, June 15

UP Deputy Chief Minister KP Maurya on Saturday said the BJP government may consider introducing a law to build a grand temple in Ayodhya.

Maurya was speaking at the Sant Sammelan organised in Ayodhya to mark the end of the 10-day birthday celebrations of Mahant Nrityagopal Das, the head of the Ram Janambhoomi Trust.

He said the possibility to explore the option of legislation would be considered if the ongoing twin endeavours to bring a solution to the Babri Masjid-Ram Janambhoomi issue — through the Supreme Court judgment or a court-sponsored mediation — did not satisfy the saints.

The Deputy CM said the saints’ struggle since the early 1990s and especially since the BJP victory in 2014 had brought such a change in the political discourse that now Opposition leaders flaunt going to Kailash Mansarovar, their janeu and visits to temples and Prayagraj.

Meanwhile, Shiv Sena chief Udhav Thackarey is scheduled to visit Ayodhya on Sunday to reiterate his party’s demand for a Ram Mandir. He would be accompanied by his family and 18 party MPs.
