Spell out a date for Ram Mandir construction: Uddhav Thackeray to Narendra Modi
Ayodhya : Ahead of planned Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) rally in Ayodhya, Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray asked Narendra Modi government on Saturday to spell out a date for the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
"Day, months, years and generations have passed," he said. "Mandir wahin baneyenge, par date nahin batayenge (You say you will make the temple there, but won't tell the date)," he said.
"First say when you will construct the temple, the rest we will talk later,” he said in what sounded like a dare to the Bharatiya Janata Party government ahead of next year's Lok Sabha elections.
Uddhav Thackeray arrived in Ayodhya for a two-day visit that he claims to be non political.
