The Union minister of state for Finance Shiv Pratap Shukla on Wednesday gave an important statement regarding the building of Lord Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

According to the news website, Navbharat Times, The union minister stated that BJP never fought polls on the basis of 'Ram Mandir' nor the government can build the temple, instead, it will only be built through court’s decision or consensus.

The Union Minister was in Basti district of Uttar Pradesh where he also commented on growth rate, stating that it is always either increasing or decreasing.

On GST, the minister said that it has been only three months since the tax reforms were implemented in the country and the change will come slowly. 

Earlier, UP CM Yogi Adityanath government had proposed to build 100 metres Lord Ram’s statue on the banks of the Saryu River in Ayodhya. The state tourism department has already made a presentation to governor Ram Naik in this regard.

The construction will start once it gets the approval of National Green Tribunal (NGT).
