BJP, govt not involved in Ravi Shankar's Ayodhya mediation bid: Prakash Javadekar

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

"Therefore, if somebody is trying for a consensus, it is his democratic right", Union minister Prakash Javadekar told the media at the party headquarters.

Union Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Tuesday said the government is not averse to any out-of-court solution to the Ram Mandir issue, and emphasised that it is "not involved" in any offers to negotiate by anyone, after spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar offered to mediate in the long-simmering dispute.

The issue of the Ram Temple grabbed headlines again when Sri Sri Ravi Shankar announced he would open talks with stakeholders in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute.

Drop 'Pappu' from ad, Gujarat BJP told by EC
However, the use or word was banned by election commission because indirectly it targets the Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi. The poll watchdog said that word "Pappu", apparently targeting Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi , is "derogatory".

Speaking to Zee News on Wednesday after meeting Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Sri Sri said that he is in touch with all parties over the Ayodhya matter and hopes to find a consensus soon.

Opposition Congress, which had earlier called Ravi Shankar an agent of the BJP-led government in the Ayodhya dispute, sought to know the government's stand on it. You don't think you are sick or something's wrong with you. "Is he the designated interlocutor of the government, or is it a skylarking operation", Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari asked.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar met Yogi Adityanath today and is also set to meet members of the Shia Waqf Board. "Sri Sri has no concrete formula for resolving the issue and Muslim community will not back down on the dispute", sources said, adding that the AIMPLB wanted the spiritual guru to first convince Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on the issue and then get back to the Board in writing.
