udupiUdupi: Vishwesha Tirtha Swami of Pejawar Mutt said on Friday that the Union government should either promulgate an ordinance or get a law passed in the joint sitting of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha for the construction of Ram Temple at Ayodhya.

He was speaking after felicitating activists who had participated during the 1992 Ayodhya Kar Seva at the Janagraha Reception Office of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), here.

The Pejawar seer said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi had a majority in the Lok Sabha. Hence, it can promulgate an ordinance for the construction of the Ram Temple. Or, it can also call a joint sitting of both the Houses of Parliament and get a law for the construction of the Ram Temple passed.

The seer said that the Opposition parties could only approach courts in the matter. “The Congress is not in a position to oppose such an ordinance as this will adversely impact it in the Parliamentary elections,” he said.

The seer said that the people of the country and the sants wanted the construction of the temple. Even the Muslims were not opposed to it. “I am sure that Mr. Modi will take a determined step on the issue and the Ram Temple will be built in a year,” he said.

Later, speaking to presspersons the seer said that there was also the third option of resolving the issue of construction of the Ram Temple through talks outside courts. All three options of ordinance, legislation and talks were democratic and could be pursued by the government.

The matter was in the Supreme Court and it would be better if it was decided expeditiously there, he said. Asked why the issue of Ram Temple was raised only when the parliamentary elections were nearing, the seer said that the matter should have been raised earlier. But now it had come to the fore. “Let it get resolved now,” he said.

Recalling the events that unfolded near the disputed structure at Ayodhya on December 6, 1992, the seer said that he had done all he could to prevent the destruction of the structure. But the Kar Sevaks were enthusiastic and demolished it. Later, when he inspected the site, he found Hindu symbols there. He was convinced that a temple existed at the site and then, he himself installed the idol of Lord Ram there, he said.
