Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Monday said that Narendra Modi-led centre govt might introduce a bill in parliament to build Ram temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya after getting the majority in the upper house next year.
“If the Congress can bring a bill to overturn the Supreme Court verdict in the famous Shah Bano case, this government can also bring a bill to build the Ram temple in Ayodhya,” Swamy said at the India TV Samvaad conclave.
He was referring to a maintenance lawsuit filed by Shah Bano in the Supreme Court, which had granted her the right to alimony from her husband.
Swami requested Supreme Court to start day-to-day hearing on the Ayodhya dispute and hoped a favourable verdict in December this year.
During the debate, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi ruled out mediation to solve the Ayodhya dispute. “It is clearly a title suit, and there is no question of mediation. Let the Supreme Court give its verdict. We will accept (it),” he said.
