New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Monday said he would approach the Supreme Court if Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government at the Centre does not start the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya by 2016.
“There is a widespread demand in our country. For Ram we must build the temple. This is the promise we had made that whoever comes to absolute majority will do it. We cannot let down the people of India. And, therefore, if the Prime Minister doesn’t feel it can’t be done by him through the government, I will do it through the Court [Supreme Court],” he told ANI here.
“I am already a petitioner in the Supreme Court and I am already presently about to have the Supreme Court hear my petition on the facilities being given to the pilgrims in that area and I am the person who filed that petition to save Ram Setu,” he added.
The BJP, which achieved absolute majority in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, had after coming to power said that Prime Minister Modi-led government at the Centre would clear the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
