New Delhi: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh mouthpiece ‘organizer’ on Saturday published a letter written by Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy outlining an action plan to rebuild the Ram temple in Ayodhya by 2016 and fulfil the party’s commitment to the electorate.
The letter written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi outlined an action plan for the construction of the temple. Swamy has cited assurances given by Muslim clerics and Vishwa Hindu Parishad leaders at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s residence in 1991 for construction of the temple at the disputed site and mosque on the other side of Saryu river
In the letter, Swamy has suggested appointment of a former Chief Justice of India like SH Kapadia as the executor who may liaise with a designated minister like General VK Singh.
The designated minister, Swamy said, may issue notice to the hereditary supervisor of Babri Masjid asking him to formally withdraw his claim to the Ram Janmabhoomi and offer him an alternative site for a mosque to be built at public expense across the Saryu river.
The former minister also suggested calling a meeting of Islamic clerics including from abroad and seek an endorsement and if it is not forthcoming then government should move an enabling bill in Parliament and get it passed.
He wanted a Ram Temple rebuilding committee on the Somnath temple model.
