Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday said that the Ayodhya Ram temple issue should be resolved within 24 hours.

Speaking in the state Assembly, Adityanath said, “Ayodhya is well known in India and across the world due to Lord Ram and not due to a foreign invader like Babur. The beliefs of the people should be respected. I have said several times that the court should respect the sentiments of the people. The Allahabad High Court had specifically said that wherever ‘Ram Lalla’ is present, the temple will be built there.”

“I believe that the dispute should have ended then and there. There is no question regarding division (of land). The dispute exists only whether or not there is ‘Ram Janambhoomi’. That dispute has already been decided upon and so now it should not take more than 24 hours to find a solution,” he added.

The Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute has been pending before the apex court for the last eight years. For a long time, parties in the case and various right-wing organisations have been asking for an early or day-to-day hearing in the matter.
