Jaipur (Rajasthan) [India], Nov. 3 (ANI): Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Prakash Javadekar on Saturday said that Ram Temple was never a poll plank for the party.
The BJP leader, who is election in-charge for Rajasthan, said that Ram Temple is a matter of belief for the people of the country.
"Ram Temple has never been the poll plank for the BJP, as it is a matter of belief. The country has fought for the temple from the last 500 years, even when polls were not held in the country," he said while addressing a press conference here.
Javadekar further hit out at the Congress party and asked them to clarify its stance on the construction of the Ram Temple.
"One day in the favour of one community and the other day, a complete flip, a Shiv Bakht. That's the trait of the Congress party. Ghulam Nabi Azad is a victim of it. But BJP never makes any difference among its party leaders," he said.
Rajasthan is scheduled to go for polls on December 7, while the counting will take place on December 11. (ANI)
