On Monday, party president J P Nadda emphasized the Bharatiya Janata Party’s commitment to the country’s cultural growth, saying that sensitive religious concerns would be settled by “courts and the Constitution,” and that the party will implement the rulings in letter and spirit.
He was responding to a query about whether the BJP still plans to recover temples in Varanasi (Kashi) and Mathura.
He said that the BJP’s national executive conference in Palampur had reached a resolution on the Ram Janambhoomi issue. “There has been no settlement since then,” he continued.
Nadda reaffirmed the BJP’s theme of “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas,” saying the party aims to bring everyone together to build a strong nation.
Nadda stated “Seva, Sushasan, and Garib Kalyan” (service, good governance, and poor welfare) are the essence of the dispensation, speaking at a press conference at the party headquarters in New Delhi to honor the eight years of the Narendra Modi government at the Centre.
Nadda, who was flanked by Union ministers Smriti Irani, Dharmendra Pradhan, and Anurag Thakur, also released a theme song on the occasion, titled ‘Modi govt architect of new India,’ that highlights the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya and the Kashi Vishwanath temple corridor in Varanasi, as well as a glimpse of the Krishna temple in Mathura.
In response to a question about the Gyanvyapi mosque, Nadda told the news conference that the BJP has always worked for the country’s cultural growth.
“…We’ve always talked about the country’s cultural growth. These matters, however, will be decided by the courts and the Constitution…which the BJP will follow to the letter “Nadda remarked.
Multiple petitions relating to the controversies over the Gyanvapi mosque close to the Kashi Vishwanath temple in Varanasi and the Krishna temple next to the Shahi Masjid Idgah in Mathura are now being heard in lower courts.
