Pawar on Babri Masjid

Lucknow: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) President Sharad Pawar on Wednesday said that the government should provide the funds for construction of the mosque in Ayodhya.

"The BJP is dividing people on communal lines. If the government can form a trust for the temple, why can it not give funds for the mosque too by forming another trust?" he asked.

Pawar was here on Wednesday to attend the state conference of his party.

Babri Masjid, the 16th century mosque in Ayodhya was demolished by Hindu extrmists on December 06, 1992. After a long legal battle, Supreme Court of India in November 2019 handed over the entire land of 67 acres where the mosque stood till it was demolished and also asked the government to form a trust to build a temple.

The SC also asked the government to allot 05 acres of land in Ayodhya for construction of the mosque. Consequently, the UP government approved a land some 20 kms away from Ayodhya - in contradiction with the SC ruling. The Muslim groups have already turned down the land offer in exchange.

Sharad Pawar on UP Budget

Speaking at the function Pawar also said that the budget for Uttar Pradesh for the next financial year had nothing for farmers.

"The government has announced a monthly sop for the youth but it is doubtful whether the money will reach them. The need of the hour is to give the youth the right to work," he said.

Pawar pointed out that it was mainly because of lack of opportunities that the youth was migrating to cities like Mumbai in search of livelihood.

Unity against the BJP

He called upon NCP workers to work for bringing a change in the state and the country.

"People are fed up with the BJP and despite a high-profile campaign in Delhi, the party failed to make its mark," he said.

He also called upon all non-BJP parties to join hands and throw the BJP out of power like they had done in Maharashtra.

Pawar accused the BJP of playing the divide and rule policy and said that the CAA was an example of this.
