PM Modi, in Election Year, Says Ordinance on Ram Mandir Only After SC Ruling

New Delhi: Despite clamour for a special law for Ram Mandir by the RSS and several MPs within the BJP, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his first remarks on the subject, on Tuesday made it clear that the ordinance on the proposed temple will come only post the Supreme Court ruling.
“Ordinance on triple talaq was brought after the SC verdict. We have said in our BJP manifesto that a solution would be found to this (Ayodhya) issue under Constitution,” said PM in an interview to news agency ANI. Earlier, on Dec 25, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad appealed to the Supreme Court to “fast-track” the hearing of the Ayodhya title suit, saying it was the “expectation of the country.”
The law minister said his appeal was made not as a Minister but as a common citizen and a lawyer.
The court is scheduled to take up the hearing on January 4.
In 2017, when the court had started to hear the appeals after a hiatus of over seven years, senior advocate and Congress leader Kapil Sibal had suggested it to adjourn the hearings till after the general elections in May 2019.
