Nagpur: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwatâs demand for a law to construct a Ram temple in Ayodhya âprovesâ that the organisation would never change howsoever it tries to improve its image by inviting prominent people at Sangh events, former finance minister Yashwant Sinha said on Monday.
In an apparent reference to the government take-over of the debt-laden firm IL&FS, Mr Sinha said the country was facing a âpayment crisisâ because public money is being âmisusedâ to âbail outâ banks and NBFCs through Life Insurance Corporation (LIC).
Addressing a press conference en route to Akola where he would address a rally of farmers on Tuesday, the former BJP leader questioned the legitimacy of the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chiefâs demand for a Parliamentary law.
âHow can an act of Parliament be passed when the issue (title suits for the disputed land in Ayodhya) is being heard in the Supreme Court. This (Bhagwatâs statement) means that you want to prevent the apex court from giving the order. Though I had left the BJP, but (I know that) the BJPâs stand is that this issue be resolved either through consensus or through the decision of court,â Mr Sinha said.
Mr Sinha added âAs the issue is being heard in the apex court, they should wait for the courtâs decision.â
In his annual Vijayad-ashmi address in Nagpur on October 18, Mr Bhag-wat said the government should clear the path for construction of the Ram temple through an appropriate and requisite law. He had said the temple construction was necessary from the âself-esteem point of viewâ.
