INDIA bloc vows Babri lock placement at Ram Mandir if elected: Amit Shah

During a rally in support of Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra, the BJP’s candidate from Lakhimpur Kheri, Shah strongly criticized the Congress, Samajwadi Party (SP), and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), accusing them of damaging the reputation of the saffron party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In a severely critical attack on the INDIA bloc, Union Home Minister Amit Shah asserted on Wednesday that if the coalition of opposition parties seizes power after the ongoing Lok Sabha polls, it intends to secure the Ram mandir in Ayodhya with a “Babri” lock.

During a rally in support of Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra, the BJP’s candidate from Lakhimpur Kheri, Shah strongly criticized the Congress, Samajwadi Party (SP), and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), accusing them of damaging the reputation of the saffron party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He condemned their claims that if Modi secures 400 seats in the election, reservations would be eliminated.

In response to SP leader Ram Gopal Yadav’s dismissal of the Ram mandir issue as “useless,” Shah warned of the opposition’s hypothetical attempt to secure the temple with a “Babri lock” should they come to power.

Accusing the Congress of delaying the Ram Mandir issue for 70 years, Shah emphasized Modi’s efforts in resolving the legal disputes surrounding the Ram Janmabhoomi. He highlighted the Prime Minister’s involvement in the groundbreaking ceremony and consecration of the temple in January.

Shah further underscored the opposition’s absence at the temple’s consecration ceremony, attributing it to their fear of losing their vote bank, particularly in Uttar Pradesh.

Regarding the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), Shah defended Modi’s initiative to grant citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Jains from Pakistan, emphasizing its necessity in Kheri where many lacked citizenship. He criticized Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav for vowing to repeal the CAA, stating it’s an irreversible decision.

In his critique of the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA), Shah questioned the alliance’s lack of a clear prime ministerial candidate, leader, policy, or determination, casting doubt on its credibility and capability to govern effectively.
