Haryana CM Khattar Takes a Bold Stance, Declares “BJP Era” During Ram Temple Ceremony Spat
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar ignited a political firestorm on Wednesday with his sharp remarks aimed at the Congress party. In response to their criticism of the upcoming Ram temple ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony being labelled a “BJP/RSS event,” Khattar issued a bold statement claiming that “every day and year” belong to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). This audacious declaration signifies the party’s growing confidence and its perceived dominance in the current political landscape of India.
Speaking to reporters while visiting Gurudwara Lakhnaur Sahib in Ambala for Guru Gobind Singh’s birth anniversary, Khattar didn’t mince words. He mocked the Congress, suggesting their lack of relevance by stating, “They (Congress) have nothing. Every day and year belongs to the BJP these days and this is the era of the BJP.” He further emphasized the BJP’s perceived public support, urging other parties to simply “pack up and sit (sab log bistar gol karke baith jaiye).” This assertive stance reflects the BJP’s belief in its strong connection with the electorate and its confidence in its current political standing.
Khattar’s comments come amidst the highly anticipated ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony scheduled for January 22nd in Ayodhya. This grand event marking the consecration of the Ram temple holds immense significance for the BJP and its supporters. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other prominent figures are expected to attend, solidifying the occasion as a major political moment for the party.
It’s important to acknowledge that Khattar’s statement is likely to further heighten the existing political tensions between the BJP and the Congress. While his supporters may view it as a powerful declaration of the BJP’s dominance, critics might see it as an arrogant and exclusionary stance. Nevertheless, Khattar’s words have undoubtedly added another layer of intrigue and anticipation to the upcoming Ram temple ceremony, ensuring that it remains a focal point of national political discourse.
