In a rather shocking claim that is sure to jolt the national polity, BJP leader Subramaniam Swamy has asserted that work on construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya will commence soon and the temple will be ready by next Diwali.
It need be mentioned that with BJP already in majority in center for the first time, the party is under pressure to deliver on these long promised and hyped up issues.
Swamy’s statements came about as he addressed a seminar organised by the Bihar unit of Virat Hindustan Sangam (VHS), which Swamy himself has floated.
Swami said VHS would make efforts for the construction of a grand temple dedicated to Lord Ram’s consort Sita at Sitamarhi in north Bihar, believed to be her birthplace.
“It is impossible to think of Maryada Purushottam Sri Rama without his companion Jagat Janani Janaki”.
Plans were also afoot by VHS to also set up a university there.
The university will serve as a centre for Indian renaissance where ancient Indian learning will be promoted alongside imparting of contemporary vocational training, he said, adding the organisation also proposed to undertake similar projects at other places of historical importance in all districts across Bihar.>
