Giriraj Singh’s statement meant to instigate communal polarisation: JD(U)

New Delhi [India], Feb. 7 : Launching a scathing attack on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Giriraj Singh for his remark on the contentious topic of Ram Temple, the Janata Dal (United) (JD(U)) said these statements are given to communally polarise people.

"He also suffers from the disease of mouthing such words. He once said those who disagree with Prime Minister Narendra Modi should run away to Pakistan. These statements are given to polarise people and lure them into voting. They destroyed the Babri Masjid even after submitting afidavit in the Supreme Court," JD (U) leader Ali Anwar told ANI.

Anwar also said Prime Minister Narendra Modi likes and promotes people, who have the knack of making such statements.

"Prime Minister Modi likes people who make such statements, who can instigate debates, who can initiate polarisation on the basis of caste or community," he said.

Union Minister Giriraj Singh yesterday posed a rhetoric that if the Ram Temple will not be constructed in India then will it be constructed in Pakistan.

"We do not know the exact time when the Ram Temple will be built in India. But if not in Ayodhya, if not in India, will it be built in Pakistan?" Singh told media. BJP leader Vinay Katiyar echoed the view, saying they will raise the issue of Ram Temple vigorously and would take decision under the purview of law.

The BJP has raised the issue of Ram Temple construction time and again. Earlier, BJP president Amit Shah had vowed to work towards the construction of Ram Temple under the provisions of the Constitution, while launching the manifesto of the party ahead of the assembly polls in the state.
