Ayodhya Ram Temple Movement Was Against “New Appeasement Policy”: Nitin Gadkari

The Ayodhya movement was an awareness campaign not only for a temple, but also for “justice with all and appeasement of none,” said Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Sunday, emphasising that the history of Hindutva is the history of “our” country.
The senior BJP leader was speaking to a crowd at a book launch in Nagpur.

Mr Gadkari stated that BJP stalwart L K Advani’s ‘Rath Yatra’ propelled the Ayodhya Ram temple cause to the forefront of the country. The Union minister stated that Ashok Singhal of the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), senior BJP leader Uma Bharti, Sadhvi Ritambhara, several sadhus, and Shankaracharyas fought for it.
