“Supreme Court is ours” – BJP Neta

Mukut Bihari Verma

Uttar Pradesh’s cooperative minister, Mukut Bihari Verma stirred a controversy on Saturday after saying,

Ram temple will be built in Ayodhya as the Supreme Court is ours.”

While talking to reporters and reported by TOI, Verma said,

BJP has come to power on the issue of development but Ram Mandir will be constructed as it is our determination. The matter is in the Supreme Court and the SC is ours.”


“The judiciary, administration, the nation as well as the Ram temple belong to us,”

said the BJP MLA, according to news agency ANI.

However, this is not the first time that a BJP leader in UP has sparked a controversy while talking about the Ram temple, while the matter is still pending with SC.

UP’s labour minister Swami Prasad Maurya, who was sitting by Mukut Bihari Verma’s side in Bahraich, refused to comment on the controversy, reported Hindustan Times. When the HT reporter called up Verma, he said that he was quoted out of context. However, in his bid to explain, the minister again ended up emphasizing the same statement.

“I merely meant that the Supreme Court too is part of this country and belongs to us and that we are sure the temple will come up in Ayodhya,” he explained.

“Humne kya galat kaha ki Supreme Court bhi hamara hai … arrey bhai hamara toh sabhi kuchh hai … jab yeh desh hamara hai toh sabhi kuchh hamara hi hai na (What wrong did I say? If the country is ours, then so is the SC and everything else),” he said.

The minister’s statement comes days after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced that the construction of Ram temple is in Lord Rama’s hand. In June this year, UP CM had raised the heat on the Ayodhya issue ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, stating that “there should be no doubt” that a temple will be built at the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid site.
