A day after saying that the Centre can pass a bill to construct Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya clarified his remarks. ‘I had said that we are hoping that the obstruction in the construction of the Ram Mandir is removed through the decision of Supreme Court and mutual consent. We believe that the Supreme Court will find a way out via mutual consent. Then, a topic arose, what if there is no way out? I said when we will have the power, then we will use other ways, because the Congress is against the construction of Ram Mandir and it started hindering the hearing in Supreme Court through its senior leaders. They look at it in a political way, but the BJP believes that this is a matter of faith. If there is any effort to encourage a mutual agreement, the government will support that. If the Supreme Court gives its verdict soon, and the temple is constructed, the government will welcome that as well,’ Maurya said.
