Bengaluru: VHP leader Pravin Togadia on Saturday said there would be no agitation against "elder brother" Narendra Modi-led Centre for building Ram temple in Ayodhya till the completion of Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, due next year, as the outfit did not want to politicise the issue.
"Till UP elections, there will not be any protests against Modi government at the Centre. We do not want to politicise the issue. How can we protest against our elder brother (Modi)?" he said.
Togadia, here to attend the Bajrang Dal National Convention, said, "Brothers, the agitation against the central government will be when rival party is ruling. Now it is our elder brother's (Modi) government. Have you ever seen younger brothers taking on elder brother? Can we protest against our elder brother?"
Besides, Modi "is a man of firm resolve", Togadia said, adding that he was hopeful that the Prime Minister would ensure the construction of Ram Temple by getting a law enacted by Parliament and demanded a joint session for the purpose.
