Government cannot be sacrificed for law on temple: Advani

August 09, 2003 13:37 IST

The government cannot be 'sacrificed' to fulfil the Vishwa Hindu Parishad's demand for a legislation on Ram temple, Deputy Prime Minister Lal Kishenchand Advani said on Saturday.

"The VHP wants us to bring a legislation that will definitely not get passed in Parliament. It wants us to contest elections on this plank. We are not ready to sacrifice the government," he told reporters accompanying him to Hyderabad.

"We are not ready to bring a legislation to create a divisionů But a real solution lies in an agreement between the two communities and I am optimistic that it is going to come," Advani said.

As far as the Bharatiya Janata Party is concerned, it has already adopted a resolution calling for a solution to the Ayodhya issue either through a court order or an agreement between Hindus and Muslims, he said.
