Congress not opposed to
Ram temple construction

Party spokesman Satyabrata Chaturvedi accused the BJP and Sangh Parivar of raking up the Ayodhya issue before the budget session of Parliament keeping in view the assembly polls in some states.

Speaking to reporters in Delhi, he, however, parried a question on former prime minister P V Narasimha Rao's promise to construct a mosque at the site where the Babri masjid used to exist.
