Ram temple dispute: Shiv Sena aims to increase pressure with 'Dharma Sabha'
"Through the Dharma Sabha, we want to wake up the Narendra Modi government from its Kumbhakaran-like slumber and take up the Ram temple construction immediately," Thackeray told mediapersons.
"The issue of construction of the Ram temple is not over. The Modi government is in a Kumbhakaran-like sleep and there is a need to wake it up. The government cannot keep pointing finger at the Supreme Court," Thackeray said, referring to the legal proceedings.
He urged the government to sort out the matter immediately by passing a bill in Parliament, on which he would address the Pandharpur Dharma Sabha.
In the closed-door party meeting, Thackeray is understood to have tasked his leaders to keep pushing the Ram temple issue till it is sorted out and took a review of the pre-2019 election preparations.
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has already said that following its Dharma Sabha in Ayodhya on November 25 and the upcoming public rally in New Delhi on December 9, it will not hold any more conferences but dedicate itself to efforts for rebuilding the Ram temple.
