Addressing a rally in Tripura, Union Home Minister Amit Shah announced on Thursday that Lord Rama's temple in Ayodhya would be ready by January 1, 2024. Will go Congress Party's National President Mallikarjun Kharge did not like his statement. Criticizing Amit Shah, he has questioned his credibility. Addressing Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra in Panipat, Haryana, he said that instead of talking about the security of the country, the Home Minister is talking about temples.
The Congress president said, “There are elections in Tripura. Amit Shah goes there and says that Ram Mandir is being constructed and it will be inaugurated on 1st January 2024. Everyone has faith in God, but why are you announcing it during elections?"
“Are you the mahant of the Ram temple? Let Mahants, Sadhus and Saints talk about it. Who are you to talk about opening the temple? You are a politician. Your job is to keep the country safe. You have to maintain law and order, ensure food for the people and provide adequate prices to the farmers.” he further added.
