Ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha election, the BJP government has started playing its Hindutva card and that too in the judicial court through which they might be trying to polarize the environment ahead of the polls.
The BJP has been committed to build a Ram Mandir from last 20 years and has been mentioning it in its manifesto. The right-wing groups were demanding to pass a Bill in the lower and upper house of the Parliament as BJP has been in power. And now, the right wing groups have welcomed the move by the government.
