The Rajya Sabha member claimed on Monday that his party paved the way for the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya and removed the bottlenecks in the temple construction. The party did all this for Hindutva and not for politics.
Raut said that it is to be seen how many people will be invited to the Bhoomi Pujan ceremony in Ayodhya next month and (in view of Kovid-19) what will be the steps related to physical distance in the ceremony.
