Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday evaded questions on the formation of the Ram Temple trust which was announced by the Prime Minister in the Lok Sabha. This comes even as the BJP continues to hold that the Congress tried to delay a verdict in the contentious case, in which a verdict had finally been delivered by the Supreme Court in October. 

Rahul Gandhi's non-response comes after PM Modi announced the constitution of 'Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra' during Lok Sabha proceedings. The announcement was made nearly three months after the apex court's ruling in the politically sensitive, decades-old case. 

Union Home Minister Amit Shah had earlier announced that the temple trust will have 15 trustees. Reportedly, no one from BJP will be part of the trust. PM Modi took to Twitter to inform the people about the formation of the trust.
