PM Modi Reprimands Leaders For Remarks On Ayodhya, Calls Them "Loudmouths" 

New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi today jibed leaders for their comments on the Ayodhya Ram Mandir issue. He asked them to have respect for the legal process. Launching the election campaign in Maharashtra -- where BJP ally and Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has expressed confidence that the temple will be built in PM Modi's tenure -- he said, "I want to tell these ''bayan bahadurs aur badbole log' (loudmouths) to have some respect for the legal system and the courts".

The Supreme Court, on a daily basis, is hearing the disputed land case which is pending for the last 60 years. The apex court said the process must be completed before October 18. The judgment has to be delivered before Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi retires on November 17, or the entire process will go into re-start mode. The court has also left open the possibility of mediation, though the parties involved nixed the idea yesterday.

But in spite of the legal situation, a section of leaders have been speaking about the temple construction. Mr. Thackeray, who had been pressing the government to bypass the legal process and issue an executive order so the temple construction could begin, has repeatedly expressed confidence that the process will start during PM Modi's tenure.

"The way government is working, our hopes have increased as to the construction of the Ram temple at Ayodhya. Now, there is no point in waiting anymore," the Sena chief said again yesterday, citing the government's sweeping action to end the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcate it into two states.  

Without naming anyone, PM tagged such talk as "anaap shnaap" (rubbish). "I urge you and request you with folded hands not to make such immature and unnecessary statements... The matter is in the topmost court of country. Have faith and let them carry out the process as they deem best," he said.

The government was under pressure to bring an executive order on the temple ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. PM Modi had advised restraint, point out that the matter was pending in court.

The BJP's stance had raised allegations that it was reluctant about the temple construction and used it only to get votes during elections. Mr. Thackeray had been one of the critics of the government.
