Surendra Singh praised the stature of both leaders but highlighted that in spite of that, 'Lord Ram stays in a tent'
New Delhi: If a demand from the BJP and the RSS for an ordinance to facilitate the Ram Mandir construction wasn't enough, now someone from the Bharatiya Janta Party has demanded the very same. BJP legislator Surendra Singh questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath, with the latter being a prominent Hindutva face for being unable to facilitate the road to Ram temple.
Singh praised the stature of both leaders but highlighted that in spite of that, "Lord Ram stays in a tent". The BJP MLA alleged that both have failed in their task.
"We have a great Prime Minister like Modi Ji and a great Chief Minister like Yogi Ji, who are both believers of Hinduism. But unfortunately, during their governance, Lord Ram stays in a tent. This is unfortunate for India and the Hindu society. One should create such situation that Ram Temple must be created in Ayodhya itself," he said.

Naya vidheyak lakar ke...savidhan se bada Bhagwan hota hai. Vidhayak hote huye bhi hum spasht roop se kehe hain ki Bhagwan samvidhan se pare ki cheez hai, aastha ki cheez hai. Uspe tanik bhi vilamb nahi hona chahiye, Bhagwan Ram ka mandir ban'na chahiye: Surendra Singh,BJP(17.11) pic.twitter.com/AqIY3lGm0V— ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) November 17, 2018
He added, "God is beyond the Constitution. There should be no delay. Ram Temple should be constructed in its designated place Ayodhya".
While the BJP has been successful in bringing Lord Ram to the political discourse by Yogi promising a Ram statue bigger that will be the tallest in world, as well as changing name of Faizabad to Ayodhya, its core voters are sceptical about the BJP's political will to walk the talk when it comes to bringing an ordinance for Ram Mandir. RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwan recently adviced the government to go the ordinance route. VHP supremo too earlier in an interview to MyNation said, "Our (VHP) courtesy shouldn't be taken as our weakness".
The title suit has been pending in different courts of the country for ages. While Hindus claim it's the birthplace of Lord Ram, something the BJP backs officially; Muslim community believes it's their land where Babri Masjid once stood tall, finally brought down in 1992.
The matter is now pending in the apex court. On October 29, the Supreme Court put the matter in the back burner by saying it will decide in January as to when should it start hearing the matter.
