Ally Shiv Sena yet again took potshots at the BJP on the Ram Mandir issue.
Shiv Sena’s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut went ahead and described BJP as a ‘sleeping kumbhkaran’.
In an editorial in Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece Saamna, the party said the BJP has been sleeping for four years.
Raut also responded to the statement made by former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Friday that the Army should be called in Ayodhya, if needed, to keep the situation under control.
Meanwhile, Ayodhya has been turned into a fortress ahead of Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray’s visit.
Hundreds of Shiv Sena supporters have also arrived in Ayodhya in special trains.
According to police sources, more than two lakh people are expected to converge on Ayodhya on 25 November 2018.
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray will attend a number of events in the temple town on Sunday and is expected to pitch in for early construction of the grand Ram temple.>
