New Delhi: With senior leader L K Advani
asking party members to exercise caution while commenting on
the Ayodhya issue, BJP today refused to say anything on the
assertions of VHP and RSS that they will continue to press for
construction of Ram Temple at the same site despite a court
ruling.

"You have asked your question. To answer is my right...
my answer is no comments," BJP President Nitin Gadkari told
reporters here.

He was asked to comment on the claim of RSS leader Mohan
Bhagwat and VHP leader Ashok Singhal that irrespective of a
court ruling, they will continue to press for construction of
Ram Temple at the disputed site.

Addressing the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting here, its
chairman L K Advani said with the Ayodhya title suit verdict
expected shortly, party MPs should exercise caution while
making statements on the sensitive issue.

"On Ayodhya, L K Advani asked MPs not to make statements
which are against national interest... As a national political
party, we should make statements by exercising caution when
the verdict is delivered," BJP Deputy Leader in Rajya Sabha S
S Ahluwalia said briefing reporters on the Parliamentary Party
meeting.

The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court is likely
to deliver the verdict on title suit next month.

Gadkari also refused to comment on the statement of
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi that even if Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh mops the floor, CWG venues won`t be
ready for the event in October.
