New Delhi :  

The BJP underlined its commitment to building a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya during the national executive meet in Bhubaneswar on Saturday. 

The party said whenever the Supreme Court takes a decision, it would be very “effective”.

Asked if the BJP’s national executive discussed the issue, a core demand of the party, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said it was not necessary to take up the issue at every meeting.

However, he added that the party’s manifesto has made it clear that it is for a grand temple in the Uttar Pradesh town.

“Not as a Law Minister but as somebody who knows the law, let me tell you that there are voluminous documents with the Supreme Court and whenever a decision is made it will be very effective,” he said.

He also noted that over 2,470 party workers have pledged to work full-time for the organisation for one year and over 3.78 lakh workers for 15 days.

PM Modi roadshow

Speaking to media during the briefing, BJP President Amit Shah said that due to his extraordinary connect with the people, Narendra Modi is the most popular leader.

Earlier, Prime Minister Modi led a roadshow and mingled with crowds at several places breaking security protocol. Modi is in Odisha for two-days to attend the two-day BJP national executive meeting with saffron expansion in the state being its key agenda.

Modi, who was clad in all white, beamed and waved at the people gathered on both sides of the road for a glimpse with lotus flowers in their hands.

Defying the security cordon he even got off his vehicle a couple of times, walked up to people, greeted them and even shook hands with some of them.

He also offered floral tributes to freedom fighters and illustrious sons of the soil on his way to the Raj Bhavan.

As the Prime Minister’s 9 km-long roadshow passed through the main road connecting the airport and the Raj Bhavan, the air was rent with the chants of ’Modi .. Modi’, ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Bande Mataram’.

The state BJP also organised folk dance, songs and folk music at different places along the route taken by the Prime Minister.

He received lotus flowers when he was felicitated by members of the BJP’s Mahila Morcha in front of the Raj Bhavan.

After a 20-minute halt at Raj Bhavan, Modi resumed his roadshow. He got off the vehicle and walked about half-a-km near Jaidev Vihar to mingle freely with the people before arriving at Janata Maidan, the venue of the two-day national executive.
