Dr. Swamy slammed NCP leader Sharad Pawar by terming his comments as “ridiculous” and demanded an apology from the veteran politician. Speaking to Republic TV, Dr Swamy said, “It’s ridiculous. Another channel’s anchor had said that building a hospital is better than building a Ram Mandir and yes, I told him, we need more mental hospitals for people who speak like that. In the same way, you cannot compare two alternatives which are not equal in its application. In the old age when we used to build steel plants, people used to say building them is not as good as feeding the people of India. There are so many people below the poverty lines. These are ridiculous alternatives, we can have both.”
“We can fight COVID-19 as well as inaugurate Ram Temple both. I don’t understand Mr Pawar is saying. Has he started losing his mental faculties or what in the company of the Congress? How can he possibly in this country like this compare fighting COVID-19 with the project of building a Ram Temple after all the struggle of 500 years. I think he should apologise to the people of India,” the Rajya Sabha MP added.
Dr Swamy said the NCP leader should apologise as the feelings of the people of India have been hurt. The NCP leader’s comment came a day after the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust proposed two dates in August for laying the foundation stone the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, before finalising August 5 as the date.
