Addressing a meeting during the "Parivarthan Yatra" of the Delhi unit BJP chief, Madan Lal Khurana, at Sakurpur Basti in North-West Delhi, Mr. Naidu clarified that the court had not given a judgement. "As and when the judgement is given, the Gujarat Government would implement the same as the BJP has the highest regard for the judiciary. The Opposition never bothered to respect the court judgement in many cases like that of Shahbano and a Uniform Civil Code," he said, adding that the Left parties too had come out on the streets to protest against the recent Supreme Court judgement on strikes.
Stating that there was need to improve the criminal law justice system, the BJP president said the stand of the Congress had exposed the double standards of the pseudo secularists.
Mr. Naidu said the BJP was committed to the construction of the Ram temple at Ayodhya and added that the recent findings of the Archaeological Survey of India had come as a morale booster for the Ram Mandir movement. He, however, clarified that though the BJP was in favour of construction of a temple, it would not force a legislation as there was no consensus. He suggested that the best way for construction of a temple was for both communities to sit together and sort out the issue.
Stating that the party was proud of its ideology and commitment, Mr. Naidu said, "we will not thrust our ideology on our allies. It is not an electoral issue and there is no question of the BJP joining the agitation."
Referring to forthcoming Assembly elections, Mr. Naidu challenged the Congress for a debate on developmental issues. "The Capital is interlinked with the Centre and Delhi needs a government which is friendly with the Centre so that there is coordinated effort for speedy development of Delhi."
Mr. Naidu expressed confidence that the BJP would come to power under the leadership of Mr. Khurana and called upon the people to vote for the BJP in the forthcoming elections for the all round development of Delhi.
