BJP committed to construction of Ram temple: Rajnath
."From a VHP platform, BJP chief Rajnath Singh raked up the Ayodhya issue saying his party is committed to the construction of the Ram temple.

"BJP is a party which believes in Hindu values. The party is committed to the construction of Ram temple at Ram Janamboomi in Ayodhya. It is a cherished desire of millions of Hindus and the BJP would certainly like to do its bit in fulfilling the same," Singh said.
He was participating in a meeting of the VHP's central advisory committee here in presence of its top leaders like Singhal and Pravin Togadia and party colleagues Yogi Adityanath and Laxmikant Vajpayee.

The meetings are being held in the national capital in view of the Budget Session of Parliament which starts from February 21.
