BJP admits that it is giving "lollipop" in the name of Ram Temple: Congress

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

The party on Tuesday mocked the (BJP) for making the Ram Temple at Ayodhya an issue for elections, adding that they have actually taken no steps to build it.

general secretary told ANI that MP Vinay Katiyar had finally understood that had given a lollipop in the name of Ram Mandir for the past 25- 30 years.

"Public and has been saying that it has been 25-30 years that gives lollipop in the name of Ram Temple and gets voted to power, then they do nothing about it. At last Vinay Katiyar understood it," he said.

Branding the announcement of the construction of a Ramayana Museum instead of constructing a Ram Temple at Ayodhya as a "big mistake" on the part of the BJP-led Central Government, party Rajya Sabha MP Vinay Katiyar on Tuesday said this (Ramayana Museum) is a "lollipop" to please the people who are demanding the construction of a temple, while asking the government to intensify its effort to get it constructed there.
