For Ram Temple ready to take bullets on chest..Uddhav's man dares Akhilesh to call Pak Army in Ayodhya

Ayodhya, Nov 24: On a day Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray landed in Ayodhya, his party MP Sanjay Raut raised the pitch for Ram Temple saying "Shiv sainiks were ready to take bullets in chest" for Ram Temple. He was reacting to Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav's comment to call Army to handle the tense situation in Ayodhya.    Taking a did at Akhilesh, Raut said, " Akhilesh's father Mulayam Singh had ordered firing on Kar Sevaks in 1992. Now, we are reday to face bullets. Raut said that Akhilesh must be talking about calling Pak Army as “Indian Army is to be stationed on the border".  Sena also upped its attack on BJP. On Friday, Shiv Sena attacked PM Narendra Modi for delay in a bringing a law for construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya. In a threatening tone Sena MP  Sanjay Raut said that "we brought down Babri in 17 minutes", so how much time does it take to enact a law? Raut also warned that those opposing the temple will not be allowed to roam freely in India. A day later Sena equated BJP to ‘sleeping kumbhkaran’. In an editorial in Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece Saamna, the party said the BJP has been sleeping for four years on Ram Temple."We brought down Babri in 17 minutes. Ram-bhakts (devotees) removed the blot that had been there for years, within minutes... toh kaagaz banane mein kitna waqt lagta hai(how much time does it take to draw up papers?) If you talk about an ordinance, then from the President's House Rashtrapati Bhavan to Uttar Pradesh, it is BJP all the way. What else do you want?", Raut had said on Monday.Earlier on Friday, Sena asked the BJP to come out with an ordinance and declare a date for the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.While slamming the BJP, the Sena said those in power should be proud of Shiv Sainiks who had "destroyed Babur's raj in Ram Janmabhoomi." The Babri Masjid was built in Ayodhya n the orders of Mughal emperor Babur.In an editorial in party mouthpiece 'Saamana', the Sena said it neither moves around with a begging bowl asking for votes in the name of Lord Ram nor does it indulge in "jumlebaazi" (rhetoric) during polls."Why did those, who call themselves pro-Hindutva, start getting a stomach ache when we announced our plans of going to Ayodhya? We are not going there for political purposes," the Sena said in the editorial.It claimed the party had not given the slogan "Chalo Ayodhya", but Shiv Sainiks were going there for Lord Ram's darshan and also because Ayodhya is "nobody's private place"."There is no Ram raj there now, but the raj of the Supreme Court. However, in 1992, Balasaheb's Shiv Sainiks had destroyed Babur's raj in Ram Janmabhoomi.Instead of being scared and jealous of such Sainiks, those in power should be proud of them," the Sena editorial claimed. It further said that instead of casting aspersions on the motive of Sainiks going to Ayodhya, the government should declare a date for the construction of the temple and put all suspicions to rest."We ask you ask once again, why don't you declare a date for the construction of the Ram temple? If the issue of Ram temple goes out of your hands, in 2019, apart from your 'rozi-roti' (livelihood), many people's tongues too will become handicapped," the editorial warned."Instead of doing everything to stop the Sena, we ask again, why don't you come out with an ordinance and declare a date for the construction of the temple," the editorial stated.News24 Bureau/ Agencies
