Ayodhya: BJP on Friday demanded the Centre`s
intervention in the ongoing negotiation process of the Ayodhya
dispute.
"During Atal Bihari Vajpayee`s regime in the NDA
government, the negotiation started by Kanchi Shankaracharya
Jayendra Saraswati was almost finalised, now it the
responsibility of union government to restart the movement
from the same place where it stopped," BJP national general
secretary and Member of Parliament Vinay Katiyar Katiyar told
PTI.

He said, "Ayodhya dispute is not a local issue, it is now
an international issue, concerned with Hindus and Muslims
globally, to solve such a big issue, efforts must be done from
the prime ministerial level."
Katiyar said, "We are accused of demolishing the Babri
Masjid, but actually we were not behind the demolition. It was
former prime minister Narsimha Rao who engineered the
demolition. Even the makeshift temple of Ram lalla was made by
Congress Prime Minister Narsimha Rao, BJP was not there."
