While speaking to ANI, Sharma said, “Congress has started taking shelter in Lord Ram due to political temptation. To attain political gain, Congress leaders are visiting Ayodhya. Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath is making Hanuman Temple, Congress leader Digvijay Singh goes to Rameshwar Sharma’s house and talks about chanting Ram hymns.”
Further slamming the Congress he said, “This is the same party that had filed an affidavit and claimed that Lord Ram was never born and had no historical proof of Ram’s existence. This is the same party in which Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal had said that day-to-day hearings on Ram Janmbhomi should not be encouraged as it affects our elections. This party had once thought of removing Ram Setu.”
