Prime News, National, Karnataka, Udupi, November 27:- A staunch supporter for the construction of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, the seer of Pejawar Mutt Vishwesha Theertha has asked Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs to resign if the temple is not constructed within a year.
Speaking at the Janaagraha Sabha organised by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) at Nehru Maidan on Sunday, the seer issued a stern warning to the BJP-led NDA government regarding the construction of Ram Mandir.
“The Mandir not being constructed is a national insult. The Ram Mandir is like our mother and we cannot abandon our mother. If the Centre fails to bring in an ordinance in Parliament, then the BJP MPs must be ready to resign,” the seer said.
Vishwesha Theertha called for the NDA government to promulgate an ordinance for the construction of the temple or rather call for a joint session of the Parliament to decide the matter “as soon as possible.”
“The current government can call for a joint session and get the law passed for the construction of the temple. The current government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not like the Vajpayee government, where the ruling party did not have a full majority. The Congress will not oppose it because it is sure to lose out on votes during the elections. The Congress is neutral on the issue and it is the right time to construct the Ram Mandir,” Vishwesha Theertha said.
The seer, however, rubbished claims that the issue was being politicised and said that when the current government came to power, there was an expectation that the issue would be resolved soon. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
