New Delhi, Dec 23: Amidst ongoing debate over construction of grand Ram Temple at Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar Chief Minister and JDU President Nitish Kumar on Sunday vouched for issue to be settled through either apex court’s verdict or consensus.
Talking to reporters here after settling the seat sharing arrangements for 2019 Lok Sabha elections for Bihar, Mr Kumar said, “We have maintained for a long time that the issue should be resolved either through a court judgement or mutual understanding.”
The Supreme Court will start hearing the Ram Temple is she from January next year.
Taking potshot at the opposition parties over law and order situation in Bihar, the chief minister said, “We are committed to development with justice... I don't have the habit of speaking unnecessarily. Some people have the habit of only talking while I do my work.”
