Union minister Giriraj Singh on Friday said that if Ram temple is constructed it will be only in “Ayodhya, not in Pakistan”.
Justifying the demand for construction of the temple in Ayodhya, the minister told reporters in Ara: “Agar Ram mandir Ayodhya me nahi banega to kya Pakistan me banana chahiye. Ram janambhoomi is a place of faith and the Centre has trust in court and law of the land.”
Singh had courted controversy before 2014 polls by saying that critics of then PM candidate Narendra Modi should leave India and go to Pakistan.
