Ram Mandir politics returns
As the BJP government has entered its last and final lap of its five year tenure, the Ram Mandir politics has marked a return to the forefront of the Indian politics.
The central government has recently requested the Supreme Court to return the undisputed land around the disputed territory in Ayodhya to its original owners (as per the centre’s view, the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas is the original owner of the undisputed land around the disputed region in Ayodhya).
Most BJP leaders, close to the RSS and VHP, have welcomed the government’s move. A leader of the saffron camp opines that considering the sensitivity of the issue, this is the best the government can do in the matter.
The BJP believes that the decision does not contradict their stand that it is the judiciary which is supposed to decide the faith of the disputed land in Ayodhya.
A political expert says that the new move is a part of the BJP’s effort to energise their cadres in the Hindibelt whose confidence was badly affected by the party’s humiliating defeat in the recent assembly elections in its traditional strongholds of the party.
Naturally, the timing of the move is seen through a suspicious eye by the Congress Party. The Grand Old Party, like many others, fears the political implications of the move.
It is felt that in the coming days more similar political dramas can be expected both from the, so called, conservative camp and from the, so called, democratic camp.
