Building Ram temple in Ayodhya more important: Vinay Katiyar

Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Oct 18 : At a time when the BJP is leaving no stone unturned to siphon extra brownie points by building the Ram Museum in the politically crucial state of Uttar Pradesh, Rajya Sabha MP Vinay Katiyar has stressed on construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.

Katiyar said though he welcomes the step to build Ram Temple but nothing is worth the effort until the Ram Temple is constructed.

He also said that either through dialogue or by the means of legal procedure, all parties should come together to get the Ram Temple constructed in Ayodhya "This is a good step.

I welcome it. They will help Ayodhya develop. But till the time they don't build a Ram temple in Ayodhya, you decorate the city it does not matter. All parties should come together and build the Ram temple. All parties should sort out the differences through dialogue or through legal means," said Katiyar. According to reports, the BJP-led NDA Government at the Centre is planning to build a museum dedicated to Lord Rama in Ayodhya.

The Union Ministry of Culture is also learnt to have increased the museum grant from Rs. 175 crore to Rs. 225 crore so that a state of the art museum can come up in the ancient town celebrated in Hindu epics as the seat of Lord Rama's birthplace and kingdom.
