Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath has asserted that only BJP can construct the Ram Mandir, making a huge statement on the controversial case.
Emphasising that no one else but only the BJP can push ahead the construction of the mandir, he said, "I remember, some people said that few people were talking about Ram Janmabhoomi, whoever will build the Ram Mandir, we will vote for them. I could only understand that whoever does this work, and whenever they'll do it,this work will only be done by us. Nobody else can do it."
Citing 'gotra' and 'janeu' the BJP leader added, "So remember it properly that those people who consider Ram and Krishna villain, those people wear janeu and speak about their gotra, they are trying to attract the public. We must make people aware about this, whenever you will talk about Rashtra Nirman, if someone can take a decision on it, it will only be us."
This is not the first time that Adityanath has mentioned 'gotra' and 'janeu' as on December 15, Yogi Adityanath while speaking in Ayodhya about the Kumbh Mela said that accidental Hindus are now "showing their Gotra and Janeu". He said that people now "remembering their Gotra and Janeu" and that was a victory for the Sanatan ideology.
"In today's politics, people are showing their Gotra nad Janeu. They used to say they are accidentally Hindu. Now they have realised that they belong to the Sanatan Hindu religion, that they are not accidental Hindu. Today, they remember their Gotra and Janeu. This is the victory of India's Sanatan faith. This is the victory of our ideology," he said.
Last month, a Pushkar temple priest had stated that Rahul Gandhi's Gotra is Dattatreya. He also said that the Gandhis (Rahul Gandhi's family) are Kashmiri Brahmins and are Kauls, and their Gotra is Dattatreya.
The very next day, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh took to Twitter and posted pictures of Rahul Gandhi performing various rituals at a temple in Pushkar, during his visit to Rajasthan on Monday. Moreover, the senior Congress leader also posted pictures of the official documents that states the 'Gotra' of the Gandhi family.
