“The Ram Temple is there in Ayodhya and will remain there. Now it has to be given a grand look,” he said.
The temple issue, the BJP leader said, was linked to the faith of the people.
“The Supreme Court has accepted that it is an issue of faith. Those against temple construction should stop their political opposition,” Sharma told reporters here.
Ayodhya has a makeshift Ram Temple, where UP Chief minister Yogi Adityanath offered prayers on Wednesday during a visit to town.
Sharma also shrugged off attempts by the opposition to form an alliance, saying that it showed their ‘desperation’.
The Congress had been ‘wiped out’, and the SP and BSP did not have the courage to face BJP leaders Narendra Modi and Adityanath, he said.
Sharma blamed the previous Samajwadi Party government for the law and order situation in UP, and alleged that the opposition was conspiring to malign the image of the Adityanath government in the state, which has seen a spate of violent incidents in recent weeks.
“Criminal elements are being identified in the state and the result of our efforts will be visible soon,” he said.
IANS | Lucknow | May 30, 2017:: BJP leader Sakshi Maharaj on Tuesday asserted that no force on earth can stop the construction of the biggest Ram temple in Ayodhya and said he was fortunate to appear in front of a special CBI court in the Babri Masjid demolition case.
“No force on earth can stop the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya,” Sakshi Maharaj said after arriving at the court.
“I didn’t do anything wrong. In fact, I was fortunate to be part of that as it was a pious thing to do,” he said.
The Bharatiya Janata Party leader also said that Ayodhya should not be remembered for the mosque but as the birthplace of Lord Ram.
“Don’t be mad, there was no Babri mosque. Babar was a foreigner who had nothing to do with India. You people (media) should not repeatedly call it ‘Babri’. It was, it is and it will remain Ram Janmbhoomi (birthplace),” Sakshi Maharaj said.
Asked if he had any role in demolishing the mosque, the BJP MP from Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao also said: “There was no structure, but there was a small Ram temple, so we tried to make a new temple.”
Beside Sakshi Maharaj, senior BJP leaders LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and union minister Uma Bharti appeared before the court where charges were framed against them for their alleged role in the demolition of the mosque in 1992.
Charges were also framed against Sadhvi Ritambhara, Bharatiya Janata Party MP Vinay Katiyar and Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Vishnu Hari Dalmia.
Last week, counsel of the accused had moved a plea in the court to exempt Advani, Joshi and Bharti from personal appearance, but it was turned down.
Charges against six others accused in the matter ” Mahant Ram Vilas Vedanti, Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, Baikunth Lal Sharma, Dharm Das, Champat Rai Bansal and Shiv Sena’s Satish Pradhan, who were granted bail ” were also framed on Tuesday.
All the accused are facing charges of conspiring to bring down the mosque.
