Rejecting reports that the BJP has dumped its core ideological issues like the Ram temple, on the pretext of lacking two-thirds majority in Parliament, its president Amit Shah said the party was not on the back foot on the temple issue, and a decision would be taken at the right time.

We are not at all on back foot on the Ram temple issue. The party will take a decision at the right time. The case (of Ram temple) is pending before the Supreme Court. As and when the judgement of the Supreme Court comes, and, as the party has stated earlier, we will follow the judgement and everybody else also must respect it. We also believe that another way of construction of Ram temple is to resolve the issue by talks with all the parties.
— Amit Shah

Shah, however, denied that he had spoken anything on the Ram Temple yesterday (at a press meet in Delhi).

“Yesterday nobody uttered anything about the Ram temple — neither the person who asked the question, nor the person who answered that question,” he said.
