Claiming there was no change in its ideology on the Ayodhya issue, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday said it will make any comments on the contentious matter only after the court verdict that is expected to be out soon.

BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain was replying to questions by the media persons on what the party had to say on Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat’s comment that the Ram Mandir movement had helped the BJP but the Sangh was not looking for help from anyone to run its movement.

“We have not changed our ideology on the issue. We will comment on the Ram temple matter after the verdict is out on (September) 24th,” Mr. Hussain told reporters here.

Earlier in the day, the RSS said its response to the Ayodhya title suit verdict will be within the “law and Constitution” and indicated that further legal options can be availed of if the ruling is not up to its expectation.

“Of course, the aspirations of the Hindu society is that there should be a temple at Ram Janmabhoomi. Our response to the verdict will be according to that wishes. We will try to ensure that Ram temple is constructed there,” the RSS chief had said.
