AICC general secretary Harish Rawat on Friday said that the party will try to build the Ram temple if it comes to power at the Centre after the Lok Sabha polls.
Rawat said at a press conference here, “My statement on Ayodhya is already in public domain. I have been saying that if elected to power at the Centre, the Congress will try its best to build a Ram temple there. My stand on the issue should also be considered as the party’s view.”
He said even senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy had acknowledged the fact during an interaction with him that it was the Congress which had made serious efforts towards the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya twice while in power.
Accusing the BJP of doing politics over the issue, he said the Centre should play the role of facilitator on the construction of a temple.
