"Temple of Lord Ram will be built during the tenure of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. He is a decisive man, he will be the one to build the temple with his own hands, he has 'apaar shakti' in him", Bharala told news agency ANI.

Bharala said that Yogi is a king and has the power to build Ram temple and Yogi's contribution to the state is beyond imagination. The minister also said there is no ban on DJs during Kanwar yatras now and those officials opposing the Kanwar yatras are showering petals on the Kanwariyas.

He also said that the government does not accept the high court's order on the ban of DJs during devotional yatras. He added that during this year's Ram Navami in Ayodhya, flowers will be showered upon devotees.

Comparing the working potential of Yogi with that of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Bharala said, “The way PM conducted surgical strike, implemented Goods and Services Tax (GST), abrogated article 370; UP CM Adityanath will also take such swift action that will lead to building of Ram Temple overnight. We shall all be seen doing Kar-Sewa”, according to reports.

Meanwhile, the Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court is hearing the Ram Janmabhumi-Babri Masjid title dispute case on a day-to-day basis and today (August 29) was the 13th day of hearing in the case. The case is being heard by the Constitution Bench led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Abdul Nazeer and Ashok Bhushan.
