Chirag Paswan chief of Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), just a few days ahead of the Bihar elections gave a new revelation to the reporters on Sunday as he offered prayers at Punaura Dham in Sitamarhi.
After offering prayers he interacted with local reporters there and said that he wants a temple bigger than Ram Mandir in Ayodhya to be built for Goddess Sita.
He was quoted by The Quint saying, “I want a temple bigger than Ram Mandir in Ayodhya to be built for Goddess Sita in Sitamarhi. Lord Ram is incomplete without Goddess Sita, and vice versa. So, a corridor connecting Ayodhya’s Ram Temple and Sitamarhi should be constructed.”
In its ‘Bihar First Bihari First’ Vision document for the state elections, the LJP has stated about the construction of a Sita temple at Sitamarhi similar to the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
Upon being asked about the next government in Bihar Paswan said that they will lay the foundation stone of the temple in the next LJP government. Stressing on the fact that their government will be formed, he added that they will form a BJP-LJP government under the aegis of BJP. He also said, “At least those who are Chief Ministers will not be Chief Ministers again.”
The political strife between the two parties JD(U) (Janata Dal-United) and LJP is already brimming ever since Paswan left the NDA alliance citing “ideological difference” with JD(U). Previously in October, BJP even expelled nine of its party leaders who quit to join Paswan’s LJP.
