New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his ministers will take decision on the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya after December 11, said religious leader Swami Rambhadracharya. He claimed that an Union minister had informed him that a high-level meeting would be held on the issue after Dec 11 wherein a decision would be taken on the issue.

“I am hopeful that a legislation will come for temple construction. The government will respect our sentiments — this is what a senior most minister told me. He has asked me to keep patience,”Rambhadracharya said, quoting one of the ministers in Modi Cabinet.

The religious leader claimed that RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has also assured him of action. “He assured me that the government will be pressurised for legislation in Parliament for temple construction,”Rambhadracharya, who heads a Chitrakoot-based organisation reportedly said.

Earlier the working president of the Ram Mandir Nyas Board, Ram Vilas Vedanti had claimed that the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya will begin before the Lok Sabha Election 2019. He also added that the work will start with the consensus of both Hindus and Muslims.

“We do not want any bloodshed and want to build a grand Ram mandir over 67 acres of land in Ayodhya with the consensus of all, including the Muslims. Negotiations are going on in this regard and the construction work for a grand Ram temple will start anytime in December,”  Vedanti said, while addressing a ‘Dharam Sabha’ organised by the VHP in Jamshedpur district of Jharkhand.

On Sunday,  Ayodhya saw three major events by Shiv Sena, VHP and RSS in a bid to pitch for the construction of Ram Temple in the temple town.
