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.
BJP led NDA government has complete numbers in the lower house (Lok Sabha) but lacks majority in the upper house (Rajya Sabha) of the parliament.
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.
