Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Monday questioned why Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led central government is adamant on constructing a ram temple on a disputed site.
Singh was addressing the media here when he said, "They are only reminded of Lord Ram ahead of elections. My stance is very clear, there is no problem in building a Ram temple, but why do want to make it at a disputed spot? If at all you want to make it at a disputed place then you must accept court's order."
He also alleged that the Bharatiya Janta Party government has failed on almost all aspects, he added, "Modi's government has failed on all aspects whether it be foreign policy, policy for farmer, economic policy or any other. The BJP government and specifically Modi ji have failed."
On October 29, the Supreme Court adjourned the Ayodhya title suit till next year to fix a date for the hearing.
The court was hearing the matter which challenged the 2010 ruling of the Allahabad High Court which divided the disputed land into three parts.
