“Before 2019, Ram Mandir matter should be settled and construction work must start. Today, BJP is ruling at Centre and state. Law should be made to build Ram Temple. If orders can be issued for triple talaq,for SC/ST, then why not on Ram Temple,” asked Raut, while toughening stand on the issue of Ayodhya dispute.

The Sena, which has resolved to go solo in the future elections, has often targeted the BJP for “delaying” the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya despite having a majority.
On Tuesday, the Sena had said that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would be termed a “liar” if the Ram temple is not built in Ayodhya. “Lord Ram brought “achche din” (good days) for the BJP, but the party failed to fulfil the promise of building a temple dedicated to him at Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh,” the saffron party had said.
Earlier, a delegation of saints associated with the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) had called on President Kovind to press for their demands of immediate construction of a grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
“The complete saint fraternity believes that Ram Mandir should be made immediately by passing an ordinance. We met the President of India today and requested him to do the needful in this regard. At this time there is ‘Rambhakt’ nationalist government at most places in the country which can work in this direction.”
The Supreme Court recently declined to refer to a five-judge Constitution bench the issue of reconsideration of the observations in its 1994 judgement that a mosque was not integral to Islam which had arisen during the hearing of the Ayodhya land dispute.
