BJP MP Subramanian Swamy said today that the Centre might introduce a bill in Parliament for building a Ram temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya only after securing majority in the Rajya Sabha next year.
"If the Congress can bring a bill to overturn the Supreme Court verdict in the famous Shah Bano case, this government can also bring a bill to build the Ram temple in Ayodhya," Swamy said at the India TV Samvaad conclave.
He was referring to a maintenance lawsuit filed by Shah Bano in the Supreme Court, which had granted her the right to alimony from her husband.
During the debate, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi ruled out mediation to solve the Ayodhya dispute. "It is clearly a title suit, and there is no question of mediation. Let the Supreme Court give its verdict. We will accept (it)," he said.
