BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday said the Centre was handling the Jammu and Kashmir situation seriously and was on the right track since its actions had shown “very good results”. He also said that the Ram temple at Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh should be built either through consensus among the parties involved or through a court order. “The government is dealing with the Kashmir issue very seriously. In the last 2-3 months we have shown very good results. The government is moving on the right track,” Shah told the media here on the second day of his three-day visit to Madhya Pradesh. On the Ram Temple, Shah said the issue had figured in every election manifesto of the Bharatiya Janata Party since the demolition of the disputed structure at Ayodhya in December 1992. On the issue of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, he said the issue can be discussed among political parties.
The BJP leader also welcomed the Janata Dal-United’s decision to rejoin the National Democratic Alliance at the Centre but clarified that the issue of its joining the central government had not yet been discussed. Shah said the BJP would fight the next Madhya Pradesh assembly elections under Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s leadership. “After becoming the Chief Minister, Shivraj ji has developed the state at a good pace. He has brought the state out of the BIMARU tag and put it among developed states. Madhya Pradesh’s people have shown faith in him. I am hopeful that under his leadership the BJP will get two third majority in next elections,” he said.
