“By adding the title dispute unnecessarily, the Ayodhya dispute is being prolonged. We appeal to the Supreme Court to give us justice at the earliest, to the satisfaction of millions of people, so that it can become a symbol of people`s faith. But if there is an unnecessary delay, institutions may lose people’s trust,” he further said. (Also Read: Ram Temple Construction in Ayodhya Will be Completed by Kumbh 2025: RSS)

When asked why the Centre had not brought an Ordinance for Ram Temple, Adityanath said the matter was sub-judice, adding  “Parliament cannot discuss matters that are sub-judice. We are leaving it to the court. Had the court given justice based on the 1994 affidavit filed by the then central government, a good message could have gone to the country. It would have been a nice example.”

He expressed confidence that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will win more seats in Uttar Pradesh in the coming Lok Sabha Elections than it did in 2014.
