New Delhi [India], Feb. 7(ANI): The National Congress Party (NCP) on Tuesday took a jibe at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Vinay Katiyar, saying that latter's reiteration on Ram Temple on everyday basis is meaningless as the matter is sub-judice in the Supreme Court. "Vinay Katiyar ji is empowered and authorized to talk about Ram Mandir every day. But simply by talking about Ram Mandir everyday as it is meaningless," NCP leader Majeed Memon told ANI. Memon also expressed that even Prime Minister Narendra Modi would find it difficult to defy the Supreme Court by bring the Ram Temple issue. "I know I cannot raise Babri Masjid and so do I know that he(Vinay) can also not raise Ram Temple because the matter is sub judice before the highest court and even the Prime Minister of India will find it difficult to defy the Supreme Court. Let Vinay Katiyar be happy with what he says for his self satisfaction," he added. Katiyar on Monday said that they will raise the 'Ram temple' issue vigorously. "We will raise ram temple issue vigorously and find a solution through legal passage. If needed, we will also take further steps," Katiyar said.
