Yogi reiterates commitment to Ram Temple

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, in a veiled manner, expressed his commitment to the construction of Ram Temple at Ayodhya and said his government would act in accordance with the sentiments of the saint community.

Speaking at the Vishwa Hindu Parishad-sponsored 'Dharm Sansad' (Religion Parliament) near 'Sangam' (the confluence of Ganga, Yamuna and mythical Sarswati rivers) at Allahabad on Friday, Adityanath said the Centre and the state governments were doing what the saints desired.

"We need the blessings of the saints... we also want what you all desire... but we cannot express it... we will do what you want," Adityanath said in a veiled reference to the Ram Temple construction.

The chief minister, who had earlier expressed his commitment to the Ram Temple, said that he had not changed, though his responsibilities had increased.

The meeting, which was attended by prominent VHP leaders and saints associated with the Ram Temple movement, saw the speakers seeking construction of temple at Ayodhya. "The construction of Ram Temple is a matter of faith and prestige for the country," VHP international general secretary Champat Rai said.
