JOINING the chorus for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya, Union Minister Vijay Goel on Friday said it should be done at the earliest through any mean -- constitutional, legislative, judicial or community dialogue.

The Union Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs claimed that the building of the temple is a “matter of faith” for “crores of people” and ways should be found to “amicably resolve” the issue to pave the way for its construction.

Goel is perhaps the first Union Minister to suggest legislative route for the construction of the temple. He said a campaign, ‘Ek Diya, Ram ke Naam’, will be launched on Saturday, seeking to promote the bid for the construction of the temple in Ayodhya.

He also took a dig at Congress saying, if its President Rahul Gandhi is also visiting temples, “the party should not have any objection to it (construction of temple)”.

“A number of people from different walks of life will converge at my official residence here tomorrow to light up thousands of ‘diyas’ seeking to send a symbolic message for building of the Ram temple,” he said.

“It is a wish of crores of people that temple should be constructed. So, temple should be built through any way, be it constitutional or legislation or court or through dialogue between all the parties involved,” Goel said.
