Lucknow: BJP leader Varun Gandhi today said
all statues of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati would be
replaced with those of Lord Ram once the party regains power
in the state.
"When the BJP will form a government in UP under the
leadership of Surya Pratap Shahi (new BJP state chief), we
will remove all statues of Mayawati and install that of Shri
Ram," the Pilibhit MP said at a function to welcome the state
president at party headquarters here.
He said in Shahi the party has got a president, who will
give a new direction to the BJP in the state.
However, hinting at construction of Ram Temple in
Ayodhya, party national vice-president Vinay Katiyar said Lord
Ram`s statue should be installed at a "pious place".
"We will make a grand temple in Ayodhya," he said.
