While seeking an early resolution — preferably an out-of-court settlement — of the Ram temple issue,BJP vice-president Uma Bharti Sunday hit out at the ruling Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh for creating a “hype” around the VHP’s ‘84-kosi parikrama yatra’ from Ayodhya for votebank politics.

“Some people are saying this yatra is for political purposes. If that is the case,then I would request the people and the media to stop discussing it. Samajwadi Party turns everything into votebank politics,” she told reporters here.

Likening the current controversy with the one over the suspension of Guatam Budh Nagar SDM Durga Shakti Nagpal,the Charkhari MLA,said in the case of the IAS officer too,the Samajwadi Party government had tried to appease the Muslims by saying she was punished ordering the demolition of the wall of a mosque,“which was not true”.

Coming back to the temple issue,she said,“The three-judge bench also said one part of the land belongs to Lord Ram. I think this is the right time that the Ram temple issue is resolved.”

Describing herself as a supporter and not a spokesperson of VHP and the yatra,Bharti said the media has got “trapped” by the statements made by leaders on this issue.
