Subramanian Swamy speaks to NewsX senior Executive Editor Priya Sahgal. Swamy talks about his Ram Mandir comments and denies playing politics over the issue. He says he is confident that the Ram Mandir will be built. Speaking on Mehbooba Mufti, Swamy says that she does have some radical views but he isn’t opposed to her being CM.
The Ram Mandir controversy stirred national interest as it needled itself directly into the sensitive issue of Hindu and Muslims. Though the official approval by the Supreme Court hasn’t as yet been delivered, Swamy is hopeful that before the end of 2016 the construction of the temple would commence.
