Uma Bharati Ram Mandir Lok Sabha Elections 2019
The BJP leader and Union Minister for Drinking Water and Sanitation Uma Bharti supported the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya. She said she will provide any assistance required from her end.
 
The BJP leader called the construction as her dream, she said while talking to reporters, "I have actively participated in Ram Janambhoomi Andolan. Hearing of a case is also underway in connection with it on me and LK Advani Ji, and I am proud of it. The construction of Ram
Temple is my dream and whatever initiative is required from my end I am ready for it." 
 
Union Minister PP Chaudhary expressed his opinion that a law can be made in case of judicial delay. "Ram Mandir should be constructed, the case is in the Supreme Court and we want it to be decided quickly. I can't say about the government, but my personal opinion is that if there is a judicial delay then a law can be made," he said. 
 
The Supreme Court had adjourned the hearing of the case until January 2019. The Allahabad High Court verdict of 2010 was challenged in the Supreme Court. The petition stated that the disputed land in Ayodhya should be divided into three parts for each party - the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla. 
 
Despite the matter being sub-judice many spiritual leaders called for the immediate resolution of the matter, and have even claimed that construction of the temple will begin in December this year. 
 
The leader of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Sadhvi Prachi had even fixed the date for the construction. She said that December 6 must be fixed for the construction of Ram Temple and Hindus from all over the country must be called to Ayodhya for it. 
 
She is not the only one to make such remarks, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) general secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi also said that a movement similar to the one initiated in 1992 will be carried out, if necessary. 
 
On December 6 1992, Babri Masjid in Ayodhya was demolished by allegedly by a group of Hindu activists. They claim that the mosque was constructed by Mughal king Babur after demolishing a Ram Temple that originally stood there.
 
The issue is in court and became a prominent issue for every election since then.
