Bharatiya Janata Party New Delhi, April 3 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Friday reiterated its commitment to the construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya as well as the removal of the constitution’s article 370 that gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
Among the party’s promises:

– The BJP remains committed to the construction of a grand Ram Mandir at Ayodhya.

– BJP will not allow anybody to touch the Ram Setu (also known as Adam’s bridge, close to the southern tip of India). The party will evolve a new route for the Sethusamudram shipping canal project bypassing Ram Setu.

– Cleaning the Ganga and other major rivers will be a priority. Local communities will be enrolled in this task.

– Cow protection is an article of faith with BJP. This will be pursued relentlessly.

– Full integration of the nation is not possible as long as Article 370 (relating to the special status of Jammu and Kashmir) stays on the statute books. BJP remains steadfast in its belief that the provision must be removed to ensure India’s unity.
