The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has declared in an interview that after the judicial process the government will be ready to make all efforts for the Ram temple.

This stance of the Prime Minister, welcomed by the RSS as a “positive step”, is deplorable. It is a move to pressurize the Supreme Court by indicating that the government will take steps to facilitate the building of the temple irrespective of the verdict of the court.

The Prime Minister who has taken oath of office under the Constitution is bound to follow and implement the verdict of the Supreme Court.
