"The 'saints' here are unhappy over the statement issued by Rajnath Singh. They believed that BJP will not betray the people and they want the ruling party to enact a law as per its promises to pave the way for construction of Ram temple," senior member of the Ram Janmbhoomi Nyas and former MP Ram Vilas Vedanti said.

"Rajnath Singh as the then national president of BJP during Mahakumbh 2013 had promised the 'sants' that if voted to power, his party will enact a law for making the temple a reality and they want the government to keep its promise," Vedanti said.

To Singh's contention that BJP does not have majority in the Upper House of Parliament, Vedanti said that by October 2016, the ruling party will be in a comfortable position in Rajya Sabha.

"Till then, the Centre should hand over the undisputed 67 acres land to the Ram Jamnbhoomi Nyas and for the disputed piece of land, it can enact a law in 2016," Vedanti said.

He demanded that before 2017 Uttar Pradesh assembly poll, the undisputed area should be given to the Nyas.

"If they betray Ram 'bhakts' and don't pave the way for the temple, they should very well understand what their future will be," Vedanti warned.

Acharya Satyendra Das, head priest of the Ram Janmbhoomi, temple said they had high hopes that BJP would find a way out when it formed the government at the Centre with massive majority.

Construction of a Ram Temple in Ayodhya was among the promises made by BJP in its Lok Sabha election manifesto.
