New Delhi:

Congress leader and MP Mallikarjun Kharge on Sunday attacked BJP, saying the saffron party leaders always start taking about Ram temple whenever election approaches.

His comments came after BJP leader Subramanian Swamy claimed that the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya would begin soon and it would be ready to receive devotees by next Diwali.

Kharge said the matter is in court jurisdiction before the court and nothing can be done before its decision.

“Whenever election comes, BJP leaders start talking about it (Ram temple). However, the matter is in court jurisdiction & nothing can be done before its decision,” said Mallikarjun Kharge.

“We will celebrate the forthcoming Diwali in Ram temple,” said Swamy, who delivered a lecture on ‘Ramrajya’ on Saturday night.
