The Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid site in Ayodhya has been under dispute regarding what would be built there, a Ram temple or a Masjid, however, according to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday, there is "no doubt" that a Ram temple would be built in Ayodhya.

Addressing a 'Sant Sammelan' in Ayodhya, CM Adityanath said, “Maryada Purushotam Ram iss brahmand ke swami hain. Swabhavik roop se Ayodhya mein jab prabhu Ram ki kripa hogi toh Ayodhya mein bhagwan Ram ka bhavya mandir banke hi rahega… ismein koi sandeh hona hi nahin chahiye (Lord Ram is the master of this universe. It is obvious that when Ayodhya has his blessings, the Ram temple would be built in Ayodhya… there should be no doubt about this).”

The statement on Monday from the UP CM marks the first time in recent past that he has spoken out so strongly in favour of the construction of the Ram temple.

UP CM Yogi's comments came after Ram Vilas Vedanti a member of the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas at the event declared that they would begin construction of the temple without waiting for court clearance, similar to the way the Babri Masjid was demolished.

Vedanti referred to the demolition of the Babri masjid and said, “just like everything happened then without court orders… before the 2019 elections, the construction of the temple would start in Ayodhya, I assure you”.

CM Yogi urged patience, saying, “You have shown so much patience so far, you should show patience for some more time,” said Yogi.

The UP CM further warned of a conspiracy to create hurdles in the way of building the temple.

“On one hand, they file an application in court to ensure that the hearing does not take place before 2019. On the other hand, they talk of BJP not doing anything in the direction. Ultimately, whether it’s the BJP or any government, efforts will be made to find a solution in a Constitutional way,” said Yogi Adityanath.

Senior Congress leader and lawyer Kapil Sibal in December 2017 had argued in the Supreme Court that the hearing on the Ayodhya land dispute be deferred till the 2019 elections due to the 'political atmosphere' however, the apex court rejected the plea.
