JAIPUR,

The party’s stand is clear and mentioned in the last four LS election manifestos. The temple should be constructed in a legal manner and there should be mutual dialogue, Shah said

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah on Saturday said his party wants the Ram temple in Ayodhya to be constructed in a legal manner after mutual dialogue.
“The party’s stand is clear and mentioned in the last four Lok Sabha election manifestos. The temple should be constructed in a legal manner and there should be mutual dialogue,” he said at a press conference here.


On suggestions that the creamy layer among SCs/STs should be excluded from reservation benefits, the BJP supremo said a decision can only be taken after discussion with all parties in Parliament. Shah, who is a on a three-day visit to the State, said that all political parties should discuss the issue of holding Lok Sabha and Assembly elections simultaneously and take it up with the Election Commission.


“We definitely want that Lok Sabha and State Assembly elections should be held together.
“The BJP believes in the concept and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also expressed his desire with all political parties for discussion,” he said.


Addressing the press conference, Shah referred to major steps by the BJP-led Government in Centre, including demonetisation, GST implementation and shutting down shell companies.


He said the BJP was never against GST implementation by UPA-led Government but it was against the way it was being implemented.


BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday asserted that his party will win over 150 out of the total 182 seats in the Gujarat assembly elections due later this year.
At a press conference here on the second day of his three-day Jaipur trip, he also said that his party wanted a Ram temple in Ayodhya “to be built by legal process or by dialogue”.
