BJP president Amit Shah on Friday announced that the construction of a grand Ram temple at Ayodhya will begin before the 2019 general elections.
Addressing party leaders in Hyderabad, Amit Shah said that steps will be taken to clear the decks for launching construction of the temple before the Lok Sabha polls.
BJP National Executive member Perala Sekharjee briefed the media about the meeting at BJP’s Telangana state unit office.
“Considering the developments, I believe that construction of Ram temple will begin before the coming general elections,” Sekharjee quoted Shah as saying.
The BJP chief, who arrived on a day-long visit to Hyderabad on Friday, also told the meeting that the elections will not be advanced.
Shah told his party colleagues to prepare strategies to bring the party to power in the state.
