Hyderabad: Every BJP worker wants a Ram temple to be built in Ayodhya, BJP MP and spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi said here Friday.
Asked at a press conference if an ordinance can be expected on the Ram temple issue, she said she does not have any say on the matter.
"But, I believe in one thing. Will any of you think that a person like Narendra Modi does not want Ram Mandir to be made? Anyone who has doubt about that? Anyone who doubts that Mr Amit Shah does not want a temple in Ayodhya.. I think every BJP worker wants temple in Ayodhya. That is our clarity. But, since the matter is pending before the Supreme Court, it's very difficult to give a date by which the temple will be built," she said.
She added: "I think we all must understand that some dispute which has been pending since ...1940 and all those years. So, a longest pending dispute in the court should be decided. As a citizen of this country seek from the court that please hear the matter.
"I mean there is no reason why 70 per cent of people do not have a right on their Supreme Court, cannot go to that court and seek a right of redressal. If 70 per cent of Indians do not have a right of redressal in their own Supreme Court, can that be the court.The court has to hear us."
Lekhi was in Hyderabad to take part in BJP's campaign for the December seven Assembly elections in Telangana.
